Yo Fabio!

Yo ho, Fabio.
Avatar 3:10pm

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.

The final shot is a treasure. "I was perfect. . ."

it's got nothing on "The Red Shoes"

Failure of tuning

Yeah. I was almost crying by that time, Poly.

Hey hey, fellow Failures!

I was rooting for Mila Kunis to pull a Nomi Malone and kneecap her or something.

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

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

It made whatever happened to Baby Jane look naturalistic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21pm

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.

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

Yeah, it's better than Showgirls, but it's just as heavy handed.

Rev. Turnip Druid:

more digging.
Avatar 3:25pm

this is great, imdb poster goes "this is either the most awesome stupid movie or the most stupidly awesome movie"
Avatar 3:28pm

sorry that was from Rotten Tomatoes

Sampling Aaron Copland?

Rev. Turnip Druid:

Needing dig therapy soon, at this rate.

@Dean: I have both records (well, the SY one on cd).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:34pm

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.

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 3:35pm

Collins wrote a great book on circuit bending and diy noisemakers. s219.photobucket.com...

@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 3:36pm

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 3:39pm

well hello. still failing here.
Avatar 3:41pm

Mr Giant Man has attained some sort of WFMU singularity. its like the point at which we all intersect.

Pretty sure I could go 24 hours exclusively complaining, but that's just me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm

That's a good idea for a contest to get into the Guinness Book of World Records.

@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.]

really enjoying this, fabio! and right you are, steve!

where's Clay with those German pronunciations when you need him?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm

I have heard a couple things from that Padna record this week, really liking it.
Avatar 4:19pm

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

@ 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!

This show opened with 12 long minutes of Mr. Giant Man:

Avatar 5:05pm

If it was all Mister Giant Man, those minutes were not long enough.
Avatar 5:06pm

hi Kenzo!

I knew I was having particularly excellent dreams for a reason.

Ya gotta have H(e)art.

Fabio, it sounds like they did a great job, but boy. Fires. nasty stuff

Off for beersies, then Obnox and Death. Later.
Avatar 5:17pm

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 5:17pm

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

@Chris - Just make sure you do those things in the right order.

Obnox and Death? I am incredibly jealous.
