16mm rare print of 'Falcon & The Snowman'

One of my favorite films, 'Falcon and the Snowman' on a rare 16 mm print.  Excellent print - no vinegar syndrome. Tim Hutton rules and truly has incredible on-screen chemistry with a very young Sean Penn (they had their chemistry proven before in the film, TAPS). Falconry is a lifestyle, like filmmaking.

Well, I've got to run to keep from hiding
And I'm bound to keep on riding
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
And I don't own the clothes I'm wearing
And the road goes on forever
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let them catch me, no
Not gonna let 'em catch the midnight rider
And I've gone by the point of caring
Some old bed I'll soon be sharing
And I've got one more silver dollar
But I'm not gonna let 'em catch me, no
Not gonna let them catch the midnight rider.

Midnight Rider, Gregg Allman

                                                       Sheila Nevins is so great. 

Congratulations to Sophia Coppola ! Huge win marking you as the second woman to ever win the prize- Best Film Director 2017 at Cannes Film Festival. Well deserved and took way too long. You rock. And like I always have said, your films are far more original than your dad's work (aesthetically). 
so, so cool. bye.

Ya gotta have faith.

Kinda experienced the unexpected, as the new Ridley Scott 'Alien: Covenant' film was far better than I thought it would be. It was pretty great. Scott remained focused on the 'Prometheus' existential backstory of the mystery of creation and faith, and even inserted an Abel and Cain theme between two cyborgs - a power struggle between soulless beings made by man's power hungry mind and God complex. The film was pretty well cast and really didn't need the dumb creatures running around eating folks at all (they were just placed into this script to increase ticket sales, I'm convinced), all the movie needed was the human horror story of how bad things get when our faith is lost and left to blindly believing in objects that lack souls. Thumbs Up to M. Fassbinder, D. McBride, and R. Scott, you guys worked so well as a team and kicked ass in performances and film direction. 
 bye.   and hi to Ice Chai...              

p.s. True classic cinema...
Multiple Maniacs is a 1970 American black comedy film composed, shot, edited, written, produced, and directed by American cult filmmaker John Waters, and was his second feature film. The film features several actors who were part of the Dreamland acting troupe for Waters' films.

p.s. This is an excellent soundtrack by composer Jed Kurzel, with very tasteful (i.e. subtle) uses of synths and moods... very impressive.

Bis Bald.

  I won't ever forget you buddy. 


On April 25, 1988, at the age of 52, V. Solanas died of pneumonia at the Bristol Hotel in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. A building superintendent at the hotel, not on duty that night, had a vague memory of Solanas: "Once, he had to enter her room, and he saw her typing at her desk. There was a pile of typewritten pages beside her. What she was writing and what happened to the manuscript remain a mystery." Her mother burned all her belongings posthumously.

TGIF folks.



and for the record, Soundgarden before 'Badmotorfinger' is what really matters (and then Chris's pipes thereafter). Soundgarden before record company rep business sharks came in- and smelled the blood $$$. Although, 'Slaves and Bulldozers' is pretty damn classic... just sayin'.

for Chris

"Say Hello 2 Heaven"

Please, mother of mercy
Take me from this place
and the long winded curses
I keep here in my head
Words never listen
and teachers, oh, they never learn
but I'm warm from the candle
though I feel too cold to burn
He came from an island
and he died from the street
and he hurt so bad like a soul breaking
but he never said nothing to me

So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...
So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...

New, like a baby
Lost, like a prayer
The sky was your playground
but the cold ground was your bed
I said poor stargazer
She's got no tears in her eyes
but smooth like a whisper
She knows that love heals all wounds with time
Now it seems like too much love is never enough
Yeah, you better seek out another road
'cause this one has ended abrupt

So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...
So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...
I never wanted to write these words down for you
with the pages of phrases of all the things we'll never do
So I blow out the candle
and I put you to bed
Since you can't say to me now
how the dogs broke your bone
there's just one thing left to be said

So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...
So say hello to heaven, heaven, heaven...


RIP, Chris.

Kurt, Andrew, Layne and now Chris. All of my Subpop heroes have departed. No words. This came out of left field. Chris was the most positive guy in the 90s music scene. Prayers to his family. Life is crazy. We don't know if we will have tomorrow, all we know is that we have today. The fragility that IS life.
