The Stereotypes Song.

I’d say something, but really… it speaks for itself.

‘To The Batcave!’ just took on a whole new meaning.

Caped Crusading Lesbians, anyone?

 

My IMDB review.

I’ve had very little complain about at the Revelation Film Festival, and I’ve attended every year since it began. Last year’s movie Assholes was the first time I truly felt buyer’s remorse. Holiday, however, moved me to the point of a public comment.
Way back in its early years Rev screened Sick: The Life & Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist. That nearly didn’t get to the screen; the WA Censorship Board nixed it, but that was overturned on appeal. And that’s a movie I would recommend. Difficult to watch at times, but at least I knew Bob was going to nail his dick to a plank before I bought my ticket.

It’s HOW long since I posted a pic of Gina Elise?

I’ll rectify that immediately.

But let’s not stop there: introducing Kirstie Ennis, USMC veteran and the first amputee to be featured in the Pin Ups For Vets calendar.

More about Kirstie here. She’s one damn gutsy lady.

I spent last Friday and Saturday nights at the Revelation Film Festival, and got myself the Joaquin Phoenix Double.
Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot has JP as John Callahan, the cartoonist and creator of the animated series Quads. Callahan was a man of impeccably questionable taste.

Friday night’s half of the double was as grim as Don’t Worry was funny. You Were Never Really Here is the story of a former soldier who now finds missing children for a living. A politician’s daughter disappears, but finding her is only the start of the nightmare. Quite apart from the subject matter this movie’s sound production is really harsh on the ears. Everything seems louder than normal and the music is either post-industrial or pre-classical. Worth a look if you need to be reminded that the world can be a rather shitty place.

Am I too unkind with that last comment? Perhaps. The movie is certainly not dull. It doesn’t compare to anything except Requiem For A Dream, though it’s deliberately less polished than that.

If you like your movies abrasive, this will do it for you.

It’s all fun and games until…

…you discover at 25,000 feet that your chute is still on the plane.

If you eat fast, you’ve just got time for the lunch your wife put in your backpack.

The EU’s Article 13 will usher in a new age of samidzat.

If the Eurocrat bureaucrats get their way, this blog could soon become a meme-free environment.

‘The left can’t meme. And as we all know, if something doesn’t benefit the left, the only reasonable thing to do is ban it.’

Memes require humour. And that’s something the left hasn’t traditionally exhibited in quantity.

Educating ourselves, doing research, sharing facts, smashing windows, disrupting meetings, shouting down opponents… be honest now, does this ski mask make my head look big?

I’d like to think a few of my own memes have hit the target. Maybe one or two. But, seeing this from one angle, I’d say to the EU: Go ahead. Do it.

They think this will be the end of the mockery and ridicule? NFC.

Memes were just a thing we weaponised. If memes are denied us, we’ll find something else. And we’ll find a means of distribution too.

(A man sidles up to a woman at the bus stop. ‘Hey, lady, wanna see my meme?’)

Add the thrill of the chase and the Meme Dark Web will flourish. Samidzat!

From the New York Times, March 1970:

Unlike the underground of Czarist times, today’s samizdat has no printing presses (with rare exceptions): The K.G.B., the secret police, is too efficient. It is the typewriter, each page produced with four to eight carbon copies, that does the job. By the thousands and tens of thousands of frail, smudged onionskin sheets, samizdat spreads across the land a mass of protests and petitions, secret court minutes, Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s banned novels, George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” and “1984,” Nicholas Berdyayev’s philosophical essays, documents of the Czech Spring, all sorts of sharp political discourses and angry poetry.

Samidzat. The KGB fought it, but they never eradicated it.

‘Cut off one head, two more will take its place’. That works on both sides of the fence.

Do it, EU. Please.

Shoot your fucking idiot selves in the foot.

Where were the tears before last week?

This kind of thing just screws me up so badly.

Electrician shows up at 8:30 Saturday morning, as promised, replaces dodgy old power point with sparkly new double power point, job done by 8:50.
It’s little things like this that undermine my profound cynicism towards the species.
