Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

on this song: "depicts Ebenezer Joshua the head of labor union and head of the government of Saint Vincent (island) vacationing during a time of labor strife leading indirectly to the deaths of three men. The accuracy of Von Schmidt's characterization of Joshua's involvement in the incident has been disputed. Given that Mr. Joshua died poor and remains a revered figure on the island, his depiction in the song is probably less sympathetic than it should be."

Oh, Hawaii? He should be pronouncing it "HEE-lo", shouldn't he?

A Hawaiian guy told me how the Beach Boys butchered the pronunciation of Waimea Bay.

You know, I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure. Those songs are constantly and idiosyncratically anglicizing pronunciations.

Avatar Thu. 12/15/16 8:07pm Flash Strap:

seriously, Victory is pretty amazing. Though I agree with most of the major critiques of it, it's nonetheless amazing stuff. And this is a peak example of a certain sort of songwriting for Dylan, in my opinion

Funny, Conrad and Nabokov are probably two greatest writers in English that began speaking not in English. Maybe Stoppard too, if he qualifies (I don't know if he was speaking English growing up)

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 12/15/16 8:30pm Scraps:

I really really like Conrad, but I've never read Victory. I should, if I still can tackle it

Just in time for 'Jones! Oh Jones! haha
Avatar Thu. 12/15/16 8:32pm Flash Strap:

If you don't like Conrad, it probably won't change your mind, Scraps. It's definitely got the decadence of a writer late in his career, and all his patriarchal tendencies are in full force. If you don't like Heart of Darkness, you might just not like Conrad

Never knew that about Dylan & Joseph Conrad & Nabokov - tho' I did know that about Townes & Tolkien. Everybody says Conrad is like the most accomplished writer - & English wasn't his original language - but Polish? They now have these coffee-table books about every Dylan song - & it's interesting to learn from whence the elements derive...
Not sure how much I've actually heard 'Folk' versions of John B. even. What about the roots of 'Louie Louie'? That would be interesting...

total disney aside: i keep waiting for someone to write a defense of the Disney late 60's/early 70's live films like, say, the Million Dollar Duck, The Apple Dumpling Gang, The Boatniks or The Computer That Wore Tennis Shoes et al. i loved these as a kid. and i know these were a huge John Waters influence.

I saw Escape To Witch Mountain in the theater on the big screen,

@melinda Escape From Witch Mountain is great! the director (john Hough) went from Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry to that one. he also made a really odd horror movie for Disney in 1980 with Bette Davis and Carroll Baker called the Watcher in the Woods.

Does anyone remember Unidentified Flying Oddball? I never saw it but it was one of the movies previewed in the theater when my family went to see Breaking Away. For some reason it made an impression.

Hello, handsome listeners!

I think the last Disney live action that was made before they spun off Touchstone was The Black Hole. There was something unsatisfying about that one. It seemed to end too soon.

Dirty Mary & Crazy Larry is not for kids.
Avatar Thu. 12/15/16 9:50pm hyde:

the internest tells me that The Ghost & Mr Chicken was a Universal production.

Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry was a staple of my 12" crt black and white viewing.

Just encountered recently the post-stardom story of Tommy Kirk, who did heavy work for Disney from Mickey Mouse Show Hardy Boys serial, through Old Yeller, Flubber films, Swiss Family Robinson and plenty more. Walt fired him when he learned he was gay. But he was a money-maker so they brought him back in for a few things. Adult life beyond that not good at all for a long while.

The Witch Mountain movie is Escape TO Witch Mountain. It is where the telepathic telekinetic siblings know that they have to go.

The Black Hole wasn't, you know, black. The basic thing about black holes is light doesn't escape them.

I really hated The Black Hole as a 13-year-old wannabe scientist. :-)

Hi Doug!

Thanks all, much love and a most good night to you

Avatar Thu. 12/15/16 9:57pm hyde:

@Alex you're right, the sequel (also directed by John Hough) is Return From Witch Mountain.

Pronoun trouble.
