Berjuan, I think the opposite, although I have just flipped through Melancholia with the urge to watch it full. But to each Von Trier feminist their own.
BTW to all the mom cinephiles and filmmakers out there, Happy Mother’s Day! <3
Happy Day, mothers!
I’ve created characters I don’t like, some bad guys, but today there was born a character whom is vile and I really don’t like him to be in my head.
Man I haven’t listened to Danzig in a long time.
mother’s day cinema theme on tcm :
mrs miniver (1942) d. william wyler w/greer garsoni remember mama (1948) d. george stevens w/irene dunnstella dallas (1937) d. king vidor w/barbara stanwyckmildred pierce (1945) d. michael curtiz w/joan crawford
and late tonight, bergman’s autumn sonata (1978) w/liv ullmann
i haven’t seen this one so may try to catch it ^
the rest are all decent with mildred pierce the best imo and the only time crawford elicited sympathy from me :p
Oh God it’s Crawford again……
LOL she wears furs like nobody’s business. i believe she skinned your ‘chaos’ fox, ben.
She probably did it all herself too.
I can totally see her doing it.
That Bergman is really good. One of my favorites.
I’m hoping my DVR cooperates and records Autumn Sonata. Right now I’m finishing up The Innocents.
<3 The Innocents.
Nothing like a child yelling “You’re a damn hussy” to perk me up!!
also this guy died today. rip :(
donald ‘duck’ dunn was a legendary bass player who got his start with booker t and the mgs and was a long time session man for stax records in memphis, appearing on many soul classics, as well as performing with the blues brothers, muddy waters, freddie king, albert king, levon helm, neil young, jerry lee lewis, eric clapton, tom petty, creedence clearwater revival, wilson pickett, sam & dave, rod stewart and bob dylan among many others. here he is backing up otis redding in 1966
he died this morning on tour in japan with steve cropper, who is also an original blues brothers band member and booker t & the mgs’ guitarist. these guys were giants who basically created what became known as the memphis sound, as well as being notably one of the first racially integrated rock groups.
duck dunn was 70 yrs old
his discography here
duck dunn was a real inspiration, big fan! RIP. ‘time is tight’ is one of the songs that i can remember learning to play bass to. over and over
speaking of cropper, he’d most likely be in my top 5 favorite guitarists =)
Oh Mildred Pierce… great flick.
if only glendale was still like it was in that movie
^ ha ha Oh dear. The song that goes horribly wrong toward the end. Like… (not that this is the only one of his songs that ends with things going horribly wrong)…
<3 cale odi
unfortunately they didn’t have my favorite track from that album on youtube; The man who couldn’t afford to orgy… it’s a classic =(
I don’t think i’ll ever know what this ^ song is about, but i don’t care =)
^ with some nice guitar by lowell george
kevin ayers’ tribute to his buddy syd barrett :
I’ve been terrorized and I’ve been brutalized… I’ve been pushed around, I’ve been lost and found
Here’s The Man Who Couldn’t Afford To Orgy.
I didn’t know that “orgy” was also pronounced with a hard “g.” LOL
I forgot all about that song, and it is a great one, thanks for reminding me, J,!
BTW, playing that song would be a pretty funny way to seduce someone.
awesome, thanks odi!
haha,yeah funny and pathetic ;)
