There's a best year for music? Pfft. Time is meaningless. Clocks melt in the true sunlight. Dripping water hollows out a stone. Does the water know time? No. Does this Kinski track ever get old? Does it age or die? Can you get sick of it? No! Never.

Such a great live band, though I have not seen them more recently.
Avatar 3:19pm kat330:

Maybe I should amend that '67 was the best year for music over the radio. No genre separation back then. Motown was followed Baez followed by the British Invasion followed by LA / SF psychedelia followed by Dylan, u.s.w.

they signed to sub pop at some point, and focused their sound a bit away from the space rock. not sure what they're up to now

Philo and I watched a B-movie SF marathon of sorts over the weekend -- gotta escape the news out there somehow -- and one called Monolith Monsters involved using bombed dam waters through an old CA desert salt mine to create a saline solution to stop the silicon monsters arriving on Earth as meteorites. It was a hoot.
Avatar 3:31pm steve:

that sounds great kat. ive been watching a lot of Mystery Science Theater 3000s lately for similar reasons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm common:

@steve and kat330: just had an mystery science theater marathon this weekend. that monolith monsters flick sounds right up my alley!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm common:

a not an.
Avatar 3:35pm kat330:

It was rather odd that almost every one of those we watched, including a Japan/Germany collab called "X from Outer Space" had as a subplot some triangle where two women were mooning over the same "hunk," And these were female *scientists* engaged in these catfights. What in the world was going on in the zeitgeist back in late '50's early '60's?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm sphere:

maybe it's the appeal of that Sadie Hawkins kind of thing (woman as pursuer).
Avatar 3:38pm kat330:

Same with Lon Chaney Jr.'s "Weird Woman," the Danish film "Reptilicus" and the much later film"The Nest," but all with that same jealous women hankering for one man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm common:

lots o strange gender stuff in the 50s, 60s. confused times.
Avatar 3:40pm kat330:

@sphere: More likely fulfilling a typical male fantasy. But the funny thing is, some of these movies' female scientists were actually *solving* the problems and the ones to save the day. I found that encouraging.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Davis:

i thought it was the yyt man, great track
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm sphere:

If you've never read about the origins of Wonder Woman (circa 1941), it's well worth your time. Quite a bit of gender politics.

@common: Ooops, guess I should have announced a spoiler alert on the Monolith Monsters. :}

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm common:

@kat330: I am certainly gonna check that one out! love that shit!
  4:00pm P-90:

Hi DJ Scott and everyone.

@ kat330: May I chime in and suggest that SF genre films in the post-war years followed the prevailing dramatic fashions just like any Hollywood films, and that audiences still wanted to see "strong" female characters (as they had since the 20's)-- --and in the 50's that often appeared as a heated competition between two female characters for something they both want, most often a man.
One of the most interesting examples of current dramatic styles "invading" a genre film came a little later, in Hitchcock's "The Birds." Tennessee Williams was the hottest thing then, and in the middle of the SF scenario there's a totally Williams-like Gothic-psychological battle over Rod Taylor between Tippi Hedren and Jessica Tandy (as his mother!) It's a Disaster/Horror/Sci-fi thriller with a (then) totally trendy soap opera grafted on...
Avatar 4:04pm kat330:

@P-90: Thesis material there! :) It was just so surprising that *every* one of those B movies we watched had that exact same subplot. I had bought several sets of SF for Philo's birthday, but we watched from all different sets, so it wasn't a specific theme for a set or anything.

However, we cleansed our palate by finishing up with "African Queen" -- one strong woman and one lovable goofball performance by Bogie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm DCE:

getting pretty deep into the swamp on this one
  4:12pm P-90:

@ Kat: Those were the "B" movies. The "A" Science Fiction movies of the '50s (there's just about 5 of them) were much more mature and creative about relationships and gender roles.
I still think the the romance between Gene Barry and Ann Robinson in "The War of the Worlds" is one of the best examples of a "love story" being wedged into something that originally had nothing of the sort, in any Hollywood movie...

Jeez, where's Show of Bedlam been all my life? Must have more...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...late to the Show & Comments !...
...Pals' 'WarOfTheWorlds' may have stuck to H.G. Wells' story as far as the Romance - if the 70s RockOpera (which I like!) is any indication; myself, I say stick to the original Victorian - & le the Empire Metaphors fall where they may. I would say most Alien Invasions are a Variation on Wells here...
...Gotta stump for 'ForbiddenPlanet' - which was a direct bid for a high budget for a 50s SciFi - based on The Tempest, & in turn a direct template for StarTrek & its' ilk
- & an interesting contrast to 'DayEarthStoodStill's austere stylistic elegance...'Day' is based on an earlier Pulp story - as many were, some better than others...
