Carpenter wins plagiarism lawsuit!


Well, John is on a roll this year. WTF. He whipped Luc Besson's bootie with this, he's on a tour that's selling out world-wide and he's producing and composing for the new Halloween series he has announced that he's releasing. Oh yeah, one last thing- he's 68. Drop the mike. Damn. 




                                                  


Bernard Herrman, Cohen and Rick Baker screening on 35mm stereo (1974 cinema)

Herrmann’s score for It’s Alive represents the epitome of his succinct style. The music evolves from short, mostly conjunct motives (usually only 2–5 notes), repeated sequentially.  There is little in the way of extended melody. The orchestration is also typical for Herrmann: an unusual ensemble consisting of 6 clarinets, 8 French horns, 6 trumpets, 6 trombones, 2 tubas, 2 harps, Moog synthesizer, electric bass guitar, organ and percussion. The only string instrument is a solo viola d’amore, a Baroque-era instrument that the composer previously used for On Dangerous Ground and one of his Twilight Zone episode scores. bye.

Thank God it's Sunday and not Monday.

But nuthin' beats TGIF Fridays. Nuthin'. Period. And bye.

Dostoevsky hails a Siberian gypsy cab on 86th street.


Her's a sample clip from tonight's excellent stage performance.
I wasn't crazy about the adaptation, but the direction overall was superb.
Directed by Aleksey Burago
Adaptation by Di Zhu

"Life is in ourselves and not the external - to be a human being among human beings,and remain one forever, no matter what misfortunes befall, not to become depressed, and not to falter --- this is what life is,herein lies its task."   - Fyodor Dostoevsky

p.s.  Fyodor's was a crazy Siberian prisoner story, how bout a crazy 2016 Kentucky story now- with no pants on...God bless Judge Wolf...



'Listen To Me Marlon'

video 

Gotcha !

video

SOME REVIEWER HAD SAID: This movie 'GOTCHA!' is a real 80's movie, but in a positive way. It also brings back those memories of the cold war that used to be. Especially in East-Berlin the movie becomes tense. Besides tense the movie is also quite funny. Anthony Edwards is well-cast as the young man being whirled into the wicked world of espionage behind the Iron Curtain, and I can´t help falling in love with Linda Fiorentino..That woman is so seductive and sexy in a strange mysterious way. She, and the border-tension of East Berlin, is my main reason for really liking this movie...They don´t make´em like this any more....Its Spy Game of the 80's.



Recorded police brutality, smartphone cinema and a dead 'Mondo Mondo' 70's genre- revived.



Body cams, dash cams and the world-wide web's LIVE VIDEO feeds are now a new hybrid wave of 42nd street Mondo Mondo cinema.  Crazy

First presidential debate
Location: Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY

The first debate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate. The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.

*Wright State University in Ohio has withdrawn from holding the First Presidential debate due to budget issues. Hofstra University will step in to host the first Clinton/Trump debate.




We All Want Modern-Day Technology and a Golem.





go·lem
ˈɡōləm/
noun
  1. - in Jewish legend is a clay figure brought to life by magic.
    - an automaton or robot.

1927 is the name of a London-based independent performance company that specializes in combining performance and live music with animation and film. Their latest work is, GOLEM that is a commentary on modern-day technology and its effects on stimulating (and corrupting) our imagination. Golem is a creatively mind-blowing live show !  Central to1927's vision is the exploration of the relationship between live performer and projected animation film images (i.e. moving images). GOLEM is a 90 minutes dream state experience that combines spoken word, film, music, song, movement, live percussion and handmade animation drawing that successfully fuses these disparate elements in a minutely choreographed harmony. 1927 cuts its teeth on the London cabaret scene and the avant-garde radicalism of the Bauhaus (the infamous influential school of avant-garde art that was founded in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933. The Bauhaus brought together artists, architects, and designers in an extraordinary conversation about the nature of art in the age of technology. Aiming to rethink the very form of modern life, the Bauhaus became the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have profoundly shaped our visual world today).

I love Karen Finley. Always have, always will.

   

I remember seeing Karen perform in some dive in Chinatown years ago. She popped up early and ordered everyone a delivery of egg rolls from a local chinese food shop down the street, so cool. Karen is the shit.

No more tracking







  In 1976, the President of Victor Company of Japan introduced the JVC HR-3300, the world’s first VCR that used VHS as its format. As a result, a new age of home video was ushered in, one that would maintain a strong hold on our market for two decades before it would begin its steady decline in the mid-90’s thanks to the DVD and, eventually, Blu-ray.  As digital home media grew stronger and stronger, the need for VCR’s began to wane as many people simply abandoned the format. 


This month marks the final breathes of the iconic machine as Funai Electric, the world’s last manufacturer of VCRs, has announced that they are ceasing production of all units due to declining sales and difficulty finding the necessary parts for construction. In short, the extinction of the last VHS unit has arrived.


I remember watching movies all the time on VHS. It was a ritual when I was 16 that I would rent movies we’d sit around by the TV to watch something fun. I’d always get some title that had been watched so many times that I’d have to spend 10-15 minutes on adjusting the tracking to get the best quality possible. 


I have so many memories associated with VHS that it’s actually a little heartbreaking to hear this news. I knew it was coming but that doesn’t make it any less shitty to hear.

        Rest in peace, VCR.

The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) receives over 100 reports of drone incidents every month. One was reportedly seen flying over Los Angeles Airport at 8,000 feet – the altitude at which aircraft fly in a holding pattern. Last year, one was spotted over Istanbul Airport, the fifth busiest in the world, despite claims that the airport had been geofenced – that is, protected by an electronic exclusion zone that prevents the remote-controlled craft from entering. The White House has had drones flown onto the lawn, and French authorities reported over 60 incidents over their nuclear facilities between October 2014 and February 2015. Meanwhile, the global UAS (unmanned air system) market is predicted to grow 33 per cent to around $6 billion by 2020. What started as a niche pursuit has turned into something potentially far more serious. bye.

After weeks of rumors, David Duke, the former leader of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, has formerly announced his bid for U.S. Senate in his home state of Louisiana on the last day for qualifying for the race. Duke has a long history of political activism in Louisiana, most notably getting elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives in 1989.

Projector guts.


A bowel obstruction happens when either your small or large intestine is partly or completely blocked. The blockage prevents food, fluids, and gas from moving through the intestines in the normal way. The blockage may cause severe pain that comes and goes. A 16mm film projector has nothing to do with bowel blockage, pain or relief. bye.
