Guy, you auld Dirty Ho', yo!!!!!

"Night Time", awwww, "scarf flies out behind" - having experienced Midtown in January (70 to minus figures, overnight!), I kin dig it, muchly ... also, the "get me out of here, I hate it here" bit is how I feel about every job I've ever had ...

Guy, you workin'?
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 12:42 pm
 
I actually landed a permanent job, but the silly bint who's one of the 2 people who 'manage' me is obviously overcome with unrequited lust, and is keen to see me out of the job! Oh well, onto the next. Only another 3 years of shit jobs until I qualify as a counsellor. Fuck.

Your job thing pan out ok?
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 12:52 pm
 
Gawd, you seem to have as much troub with work as I do ... The job I landed is a serious amount of work (like, launching a NINE MAG website with FIVE people, two of whom ain't even full time) - same auld 'work miracles with no resources, for f-all money' kinda schtick ... I'm on 4k less than in London, cos the asshole at the Guardian who handed out the TV preview DVDs couldn't be arsed to cross the office and put mine in an overnight delivery envelope (like, you'd expect a LITTLE effort, after NINE YEARS of weekly work for 'em, rite?), and the company I'm working for lost a loada money (on some shite celebrity mag), had a big budget cut, and offered me much less than we'd initially talked about (had me over a barrel, cos Nadia already had a start date for her job dahn ere) ... So, not great, thanks fer askin'!

Readin': Three books - "Speed Tribes" about, among other things, juvenile deliquents in Japan - "Low Life", kind of a Gangs of New York exploration of ye old timey crooks and such in turn o' the century NYC, and - "Ghost Hunters" about turn of the century scientists investigating paranormal phenomenon. I usually finish one book before I start a new one, but these all looked interesting and now I'm about halfway through all three...

Listenin' - Feedtime!

Watchin' - Cockfighter. Warren Oates is great, but the graphic chicken on chicken violence was too much for my vegetarian gf.
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 4:31 pm
 
Cockfighter is great. Stays very true to the book. Willeford wrote the screenplay I guess. It was too gruesome for the general public.
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 4:37 pm
 
The book is great. From his other novels I never got the impression that Willeford was a hick, but he grew up in Arkansas and from Cockfighter you get the impression that he must have been pretty well-steeped in hick-dom to write about it so convincingly...

WIRED--John Belushi bio

Reading this big book about robots which is cool.

listening to a lot of Homosexuals. the band, I'm not listening to a load of actual homosexuals.

Watching a programme about Jack the Ripper later!!!! Awesome!

Guy, our Steptoe (Sanford) and Son days are behind us thanks to borrowing a van and making 12 trips to the tip. Leeds is a good place to live at the moment. theres a ton of good bands appearing and a lot of fun stuff to do. Plus you can get work if you actually want it pretty easily. Size-wise, its slightly larger than Milwaukee. (thats the only city I can compare it to size wise as I looked it up in a book).

who directed cockfighter? i want to sat it was peckinpah, but am i just making a mistake and a joke at the same time.
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 5:23 pm
 
Aha, mystery solved, THAT Shaun!

Must check out Cockfighter, cos Willeford is a genius (and so is Warren Oates) ...
Posted: Nov 21, 2006 5:32 pm
 
I believe it was directed by Roger Corman...but I could easily be wrong. I think his studio made it at any rate.

"Speed Tribes" about, among other things, juvenile deliquents in Japan

Schooley, you like Speed Tribes? That's on my list to read. I've got a fascination with the bosozoku boys subculture.

I just saw a couple of westerns he did with Jack Nicholson, The Shooting and Ride in the Whirlwind. Weird, slow westerns ... kind of like Two Lane Blacktop but not as good. They're worth checking out though. The ending of The Shooting is really bizarre.

Saw Bond on Saturday nite, cos Nadia's a big fan, and I gotta say, they did a pretty good makeover, despite reservations about the new leading fella. He's good, old whatsisface, but is a bit too buff (like a walking testicle, actually) ...

The Shooting RULES!!! One of my favorite westerns ever!!

readin': I haven't been able to start anything after finishing the Road. Still processing that one. I did buy some books recently, though: Orwell's Down + Out in Paris + London, The House That Trane Built: the Story of Impulse Records, and Mark Z. Danielewski's (House of Leaves) new book, Only Revolutions.

rekkidin': Screamin' and Hollerin' the Blues... I can't believe I waited so long to pick this up. Unreal. It's like a musical art object- makes we wanna go out and buy the Albert Ayler one.

Watcheroonie-in: Catchin' up on MI-5/Spooks, saw the Proposition too. The Ed Norton Down in the Valley flick was pretty good, too.

Bookshit: The History of Torture. My god. So far the winner is this Dutch technique where they put rats in a kettle, tie it to your stomach, and then hold it to flames so the rats have to burrow through you. Fuck. Also, a bunch of art books I bought at the Strand. Naive art, James Ensor and Alfred Kubin. My boyz Ensor and Kubin rocked the 19th Century's hiz-ouse with some dope shit!

Recordshit: Those 2 Sun City Girls LPs on Majora, the SCG found a bunch of them and are selling them on their website. Also listening to the Sibylle Baier reissue (possibly the most depressing loner folk shit ever), The Fix and Numbskull reissues.

Movieshit: I just got the Documentary Channel, so whatever's on that wins. That and Equinox: http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=338

Reading: I'm attempting to finally get through Love in the Time of Cholera after like my tenth try. It's good, but at the same time way over descriptive over the most mundane things. I want to scream "get to the point".

Watching: I decided to watch Lost so I knocked out 2 and a half seasons in about a week. The first season is awesome but after about the middle of season 2 I think the writters ideas began to run out.

Listening: Flakes-Back to School.


Damn everything is old and has already been talked about to death. I'll get something new next week.

I think you're not giving the Bishop brothers enough credit here. These guys have been travelling all over the world for the past 20 years or so, recording and filming musicians. I think they care as much or more about keeping this music alive and out of the hands of the cheesy "world music" crowd as they do about their experimental esoteric stuff.

Listen to some of Richard Bishop's recent solo stuff. I'm not into flashy guitar playing but he's doing a cool job of incorporating all these sounds into his music. I shot this little bit of video on my crappy still camera a couple months ago ...



Reading: Bury Me Standing: The Gypsies and their Journey

Listening: Curtis Mayfield, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Home Blitz 7"s

Watching: Coal Miner's Daughter (saw it last night for the 1st time - now I need some Loretta Lynn records), Curse of the Golden Flower (saw a screening of the new Zhang Yimou - cinematography and action is killer, story kind of drags), The Prestige (ugh, horrible movie - most retarded plot turn I've ever seen, but I still think he's a good director)

weird, I just watched this three nights ago, and yes, it was fuckin' GREAT! Warren Oates is so cool, you don't even notice he hardly speaks at all.

I am down with anything Harry Dean Stanton is in, though. Maybe people would take me more seriously if I started putting Dean in between my first & last names.

Jack, have you got their "I Am Right" 45 yet? That's like Archie Bunker fronting The Yardbirds, very retarded, and absolootely hilarious! Met Handsome Dick the other year, when he was with the MC3, and he was just like Butch the cartoon bulldog - within two secs, he was showing me pics of Manitoba Jnr, inna "that's ma boy" manner.

"Speed Tribes" about, among other things, juvenile deliquents in Japan

read that a few years back for a class. really interesting.

Casino Royale - very nice.

i liked it, but it dragged in a couple of the casino sequences. i'd rather not watch people play poker. but that's just me personally. if it wasn't so long, i probably would have enjoyed it better. that's not to say it's at all horrible though because other than that, it was good.

reading: michel foucault - madness and civilization (for a class)

listening: to my mom's 10, count them 10! dogs barking incessantly. crazings i tell you. crazings. musicwise, though, 13th floor elevators.

watching: i just recently have watched borat, casino royale, accepted, my life as a dog, strangers with candy, and the da vinci code, all within the past week. i liked my life as a dog and borat best. tonight? probably will find some dumb movie to watch in the theater. my family's dvd collection is rather lame. ho hum.

The Dictators - "Who Will Save Rock & Roll?" This is, hands down, the dumbest 7" purchase I've made all year. It's like an angry Brian Adams screaming "Somebody recognize my relevance!"
Thank-you Dr. Stands. I think you just went back in time and interpreted my initial confusion/reaction to that record.

Reading - not sure what's next, maybe Richard Hell's "Godlike", unless I uncover my copy of Michael DeCapite's "Through The Windshield" which I've been wanting badly to re-read. Just finished George Singleton's "Novel". Anyone read Dan Fante's "Short Dog" ?

Listening - Miles Davis' Jack Johnson sessions. 5 discs. Wow.

Watching - not much. Last DVD I watched was either the extras on the William Eggleston documentary or Arch Hall Jr's "The Choppers" I've also developed an unhealthy obsession with "Malcolm in the Middle" reruns.

Yeah, but that 7" sure does suck.

Reading: Earlier, "How Does A Dinosaur Say Good Night?"

And? How does he???

Good question.

'member that flick where the Spanish ship gets shipwrecked on the coast of Florida. The King's accountatnt survives with the help of two shamen who teach him the ways and then he goes off his nut in the southwest and he becomes a wandering healer. The Conquistadors finally show up and the iron hand is brought down.
