  Thu. 8/12/10 3:17pm Mike East:

  Thu. 8/12/10 3:20pm north guinea hills:

I love Strosnek, fun film (in my world)
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:21pm Wunde:

  Thu. 8/12/10 3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Thu. 8/12/10 3:33pm annie:

  Thu. 8/12/10 3:33pm dale:

The nytimes had a video of bruno s. reprising that song in that same alley just a couple of years ago. he's basically a street performer living hand to mouth still.
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:34pm Wunde:

the double rainbow of wfmu shows
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:35pm dale:


  Thu. 8/12/10 3:38pm Looms:

Nice to have you back, Fabio! All agreed about these amazing movies.
RIP Bruno Schleinstein.
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:40pm Cecile:

the guy from Charalambides?
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:45pm Jonathan Skinner:

Hey Fabio,

Thanks for the Bruno S tribute (& for the great music generally). So sad to hear of his passing. As you played the Stroszek excerpts I was wondering, how is that Bruno S? Now I know (or can only guess) . . .

Anyways, I guess you didn't catch this article in the NY Times year before last--there was a fantastic (current to the time of the article) clip of Bruno S playing and singing. Maybe you can find it on YouTube.



  Thu. 8/12/10 3:47pm dale:

love this tidbit (true or false) from imdb:
He was very difficult to work with, though, sometimes needing several hours of screaming before he could do a scene
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:48pm north guinea hills:

Tom Carter is of the Charlambides.
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:50pm Mike East:

off to pickup the young one from school. Enjoy the rest of Thursday everyone!
  Thu. 8/12/10 3:59pm dale:

i'd like to know more about the really short guy who's in herzogs early stuff, from heart of glass on.
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:04pm yipyap:

i'm job hunting to this music...
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:05pm Sterling:

amazing set for a whippet brunch. thank you!
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:07pm Looms:

Agreed! The previous track reminded me of Empirical Sleeping Consort somehow.
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

"whippet brunch"--another great band name!
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:08pm yipyap:

"another great band name! " -- only if yer on whippets
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:09pm nyoukis:

  Thu. 8/12/10 4:15pm Looms:

Now i'm becoming seasick...
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Thu. 8/12/10 4:23pm Looms:

Thanks DCE! Though, there's nothing there about how to prevent seasickness while listening to STF.
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:26pm postmanpaul:

Nice show Fabio - magnificently sullen apres sunset cloudy sky here on the UK south coast this evening and everything is cool.
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:38pm Butt McKenzie:

Fab's got that juicy mouth today.
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:52pm sister Hairy Hymen:

This is good
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:53pm sister Hairy Hymen:

is it Chinese?
  Thu. 8/12/10 4:56pm tj:

man, this is good. Wish i could figure out what it is before i leave work. guess i'll have to tune in at home!
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:00pm MuttonChops:

Welcome to 5 pm
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:08pm Ike:

GREAT to hear you again, Fabio. Ah, "The Conversation." That was one of the dullest and slowest-moving and most anti-climactic "classic" films I ever saw on TCM HD. Maybe it was cutting-edge in the 70s but if so it hasn't aged well. Some interesting bits audio-wise though, and I loved that Borful Tang version!
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:10pm MuttonChops:

Where did you find my college demo tapes?
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:11pm north guinea hills:

I actually enjoyed the "Conversation", and have seen it many, many times!
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:12pm steve:

anyone know what this lovely talkback music is?
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:13pm MuttonChops:

Does this setlist come with a bong?
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:16pm Cecile:

Is that the same Michael Snow who wrote the music for the X-Files? They did their production in Canada.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:19pm Ike:

Yeah NGH, a lot of people seem to like it, but it bored the hell outta me. I think I was in the mood for something more plot-heavy at that moment, not a trance-y meditation. Speaking of 70s movies, recently saw Serpico for the first time on TCM and liked that a LOT.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:20pm Cecile:

never mind, that's Mark Snow.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:23pm dale:

just saw blow up. i thought it would be more thriller, less period piece of swinging london.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:29pm Cecile:

dale - same here.
But Walkabout blew me away, even with some dated weirdness. Really powerful
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:31pm dale:

walkabout's actually on my queue, if you mean the australian film.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:33pm dale:

i was actually expecting a bit more chemistry between hemmings and redgrave - didn't she have his baby child? oh no, that was franco nero.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:35pm Cecile:

yes, the film Nick Roeg directed in the Outback.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:36pm Cecile:

I kind of hated most of Blow Up, sorry to say.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:49pm Cecile:

but this has been a really transporting show, Fabio. Great stuff.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:49pm Ike:

Yeah! This show just keeps getting more mega-tingly-tacular.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:50pm Looms:

  Thu. 8/12/10 5:51pm dale:

mega-tingly-tacular? sound like something from toys in babeland.
  Thu. 8/12/10 5:54pm Ike:

Har har har. Yeah, not one of my best efforts. Heh. How about spectacu-licious?
  Sat. 8/14/10 7:48pm jonathan:

thanks for doing this for bruno s. love his films and him.
