Yo Fabio!
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:07pm Cooh:

Yo ho, Fabio.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:10pm Cecile:

I can't remember if it was you, Fabio, but someone sais they found the movie "Black Swan" amusing a while back. I was puzzled at first, but then I saw the actual movie, and it was fricking hilarious. Best bad movie I've seen in forever.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:11pm Polyus:

The final shot is a treasure. "I was perfect. . ."
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:12pm V Priceless:

it's got nothing on "The Red Shoes"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:12pm Stepchild:

Failure of tuning
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:12pm Cecile:

Yeah. I was almost crying by that time, Poly.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:13pm Claw!:

Hey hey, fellow Failures!
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:14pm Cecile:

I was rooting for Mila Kunis to pull a Nomi Malone and kneecap her or something.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:14pm Cecile:

or to quote the Simpsons: "the rat symbolizes obviousness."

Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:16pm Polyus:

I don't know if Darren Aronofsky was shooting for camp, but he sure achieved it.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:18pm Cecile:

exactly, Polyus. It was just like this ridiculous, overacted trainwreck in tulle. I will have to watch it again with more beers.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:18pm Cecile:

It made whatever happened to Baby Jane look naturalistic.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:21pm Polyus:

I recall that when the lights came up, we just sat there laughing as the confused/disgruntled crowd filed out, some of them looking at us like "you guys thought that crap was funny?" Way better than Showgirls.
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:23pm Dean:

Until just now, I never realized that Sonic Youth's "TV Shit" is not their execution of this Stockhausen.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:24pm Cecile:

Yeah, it's better than Showgirls, but it's just as heavy handed.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:24pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

more digging.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:25pm Cecile:

this is great, imdb poster goes "this is either the most awesome stupid movie or the most stupidly awesome movie"
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:28pm Cecile:

sorry that was from Rotten Tomatoes
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:32pm Dean:

Sampling Aaron Copland?
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Needing dig therapy soon, at this rate.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:33pm northguineahills:

@Dean: I have both records (well, the SY one on cd).
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:34pm Polyus:

I like Darren Aronofsky because of his flaws, not in spite of them. I haven't gotten around to seeing Noah yet, though. That one looks like a bummer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:35pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I see that "Mr. Giant Man" is up to 58 clicky stars. That's a lot of stars; a lot of clicky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:35pm steve:

Collins wrote a great book on circuit bending and diy noisemakers. s219.photobucket.com...
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:36pm Dean:

@ngh: I have the SY CD, the only SY in my collection, not counting the delightful "Fuck Shit Up" with Thurston, Lee, and Christian Marclay from their live performance at Victo, which I saw. Not a big SY fan here, but I fell for their tip of the hat to KS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:36pm Carmichael:

Heya Fabs and peeps. Lots of connection issues and page reloads on my end. What I can hear is great, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:39pm common:

well hello. still failing here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 3:41pm steve:

Mr Giant Man has attained some sort of WFMU singularity. its like the point at which we all intersect.
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:42pm Dean:

Pretty sure I could go 24 hours exclusively complaining, but that's just me.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 3:45pm Polyus:

That's a good idea for a contest to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.
  Thu. 5/28/15 3:46pm Dean:

@Polyus: Don't get me started on the Guinness Book! Have you seen that thing lately? Cheesy paper, bad photographic reproductions, inane records...

[Just kidding.]
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 4:07pm common:

really enjoying this, fabio! and right you are, steve!
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:16pm V Priceless:

where's Clay with those German pronunciations when you need him?
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:16pm Polyus:

I have heard a couple things from that Padna record this week, really liking it.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:19pm Cecile:

wow? really? I thought those were treasured, valued movies? it's sad to hear that the masters fell into disrepair.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:25pm Fabio:

@ Cecile: Actually, some of the negatives were partially destroyed in a fire! they had to sources sections from various archives to piece it all together again, but they did an excellent job!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 4:34pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...'film' after all synonymous w/ 'ephemeral'
...enjoying as ever...
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:38pm Chris from DC:

ooh, this is nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 4:46pm common:

i think i need to go into film restoration. or maybe be a garbage man.
  Thu. 5/28/15 4:48pm ?:

or maybe a garbage restoration man?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 4:48pm Mike East:

oops...dat was me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 4:51pm common:

good idea, mike east!
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 4:57pm Chris from DC:

Haven't heard Axolotl in a while. Clicked.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:02pm Tusalava:

It's important to warn the people, prepare them.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:03pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This show opened with 12 long minutes of Mr. Giant Man:
wfmu.org... (I filled in in for Fabio)
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:05pm Tusalava:

If it was all Mister Giant Man, those minutes were not long enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 5:06pm steve:

hi Kenzo!
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:06pm Tusalava:

I knew I was having particularly excellent dreams for a reason.
  Thu. 5/28/15 5:07pm Dean:

Ya gotta have H(e)art.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:14pm Cecile:

Fabio, it sounds like they did a great job, but boy. Fires. nasty stuff
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:16pm Chris from DC:

Off for beersies, then Obnox and Death. Later.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:17pm Cecile:

oboy, camp stinker Grace of Monaco is getting its US debut on the Lifetime network! I have to see that. It sounds amazingly awful
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:17pm Cecile:

Beer, Obnox and Death. Sounds like a great night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 5:20pm Ken From Hyde Park:

@Chris - Just make sure you do those things in the right order.
Avatar Thu. 5/28/15 5:23pm Tusalava:

Obnox and Death? I am incredibly jealous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/28/15 5:35pm common:

nice chris! beersies!
