Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

The best thing about the new Star Wars (that I haven't seen yet) is that it enabled me to get the old films to watch with the kids.
Just finished Stranger Things with my daughter, creepy.

ha,I always look for reasons to though. :) (@7:52)
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 7:57pm Flash Strap:

I liked Stranger Things. I'm from the same area as the Duffy Brothers, and grew up right near a mysterious gov. facility (with all this myth/urban legend stuff built up around it), which they drew on for the show. so that made it relevant to my boyhood
  Thu. 1/12/17 7:58pm yellowbird:

That last track knocked me out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 7:58pm doctorjazz:

I liked it too (as did my 18 year old...she didn't want to turn it off ever).
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 8:00pm Flash Strap:

@G: it did have some semblance of an actual revolutionary effort, sans magic noblemen Jedi, which plugs into the zeitgeist of this foul time and grants it a kind of relevance. Also it's just a better flick than Force Awakens, not that that says much

Stuff like that, I don't even view as "entertainment" so much as a text to be analyzed and batted around

Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 8:27pm Flash Strap:

I have to admit that I really like the original trilogy, esp. the first two and the first act of the 3rd (Jabba's palace, in the original unedited version, is so crazy Orientalist). But I break with Star Wars fans pretty much categorically

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/12/17 8:28pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There are worse mass phenoms than StarWars. I was a SciFi magazine nerd before the 1st came out - & was ready for an amalgamation of Tolkien & '2001'. It's got the Force & Joe Campbell Hero stuff - but it also turned out a prototype of the Blockbusters - all sensationalism & no story. Meh. Potential squandered. Japanese Anime - that rawks!...
...Now FMU - this astounds w/ range & quality. I mean - really. A Thursday off work - engaged & informed for hours on end - & it's just one day. Gary last night sharing his Thai adventures. Tonight the Caribbean...
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 8:30pm hyde:

@Flash it's not the Disney thing, really. I should explain.

i saw the first one when it came out, when i was 14. i liked it ok, but wasn't crazy about it. i knew enough about old movies that i saw where it was coming from, but didn't connect with it. not that it was a ripoff--i mean, Once Upon a Time in the West does that kind of history riffing, and i love it.

by the time Empire dropped, i was a 17-18 year old punk rocker, and so i just never connected with it. since i've seen it plenty and it's clearly the best Star Wars movie. but i just never managed to get on board the train during my formative years. so subsequently, when i saw the last of the original trilogy and then the next three, i really just couldn't get it. becasue well, the second trilogy is bad.

i did see the force awakens, and enjoyed it. it's an entertaining, well made movie and yet...to me, there is just a lot of fan service that is about things that i don't really care about because i have never connected so much with the originals. i don't begrudge anyne who is a fan the things that make them excited about it, but that is just not me.

and that is my star wars story. i will see rogue one, since i like Gareth Edwards as a director. and i'll see whatever the next real one is called, since i like Rian Johnson as a director. And i suspect they'll be fine. But i suspect still at arm's length....
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 8:32pm Flash Strap:

@rev:It really is a death knell for New hollywood. And mark me down as a Campbell skeptic in a big way. But it's also a tremendous act of pastiche, and I really love those first flicks despite all
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 8:35pm Flash Strap:

Just wanna backtrack and say if anyone has any concrete info about that tremendous Fidel Castro / Belita Palma track, I'd be very curious to know
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/12/17 8:37pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's got some stuff. 'I'm not afraid Yoda!' '...You will be.' He managed to get some Zen into dull-normals' heads. Just...well I think we're on the same page. I'm much like Hyde here - it came too late. I had Tolkien & the real SciFi - & it wasn't enuff. It's curious what one becomes a fanboy of or does not...Miyazaki - now that has the Awe for me...the anime Akira - gnarly visuals *&* ideas...let the Japanese do Star Wars - they could rock it...

I'm INTO your show, buddy!! I was just listening to a Roger Corman interview, and found out that HE was the guy tasked with changing and re-releasing that soviet scifi exotic movie into an American release,

and he turned it over to Bogdonavich, right?

And it turns out that Corman had his intern, a fresh-out-of-school Francis Ford Coppola, do all the cutting to remove the soviet anti-American elements

Anyway, I'm working on something vaguely... similar.

Hit me up sometime, I may have some projects in the not-so-distant future for collab...

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 8:48pm coelacanth∅:

to be fair, i'm not into ANY movie enough to make me care about the sequels.
i've never instigated watching a movie; never been to a theatre alone; never made a plan to watch a movie on tv; never rented a movie to watch alone...

i would like to watch the entire original star trek series though, some day, and maybe the original twilight zones as well.
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 8:48pm Flash Strap:

man that flick has had a crazy journey. I was watching Solaris the other day and it had some of the same actors in the early scenes

I didn't know that about Coppola though! I mean Wow
  Thu. 1/12/17 8:49pm Zev Deans:

yeah, they had to get rid of the communist elements (which I've never seen), so he was tasked with editing them out
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 8:50pm hyde:

love Bogdanovich. ever seen Saint Jack, the one he shot in secret in Singapore in the 70's? that was one of the best rediscoveries of last year for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 1/12/17 8:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

As you know: Corman always came in under budget & ahead of schedule - made what, 100s of films? Legs up to people like Coppola...& he's this Trash monger!
@coel: I'm like that too - & I wonder if the interwebz have messed my attention span even! How can I sit & watch one dumb thing for hours?! There's - stuff going on - now...

Star Trek took all the SciFi & many Science concepts & popularized them - lightyears & time travel paradoxes & so on. Stuff everybody knows now. Most programs were 1/2-hour - that show literally taught me what an hour was. I wonder what I'd think now...

RR, i know what you mean. i always liked the fact that i could listen to music and do something else simultaneously- which i couldn't do with tv. i do waste a bit of time though - getting sucked in to one youboob video after another; or a wikipedia wormhole. i'm defying myself!

I once enjoyed some heavy petting with my high school sweetheart in the back of her '73 Lincoln Continental while waiting on an early morning gas line during the 1980 oil crisis. We each had volunteered separately to our parents to drive over to the local gas station and wait on line until it opened. We parked in line back to back and then "waited" in her vehicle. Possibly the smartest tricky thing I've ever done.

This is backtracking but "Last Picture Show" kills me every time, & I absolutely love the way Bogdanovich used music. Of course, Hank Williams is a huge favorite of mine.
Gotta find "Saint Jack" now!

what ofege track should i refer to if i am interested in crazy, indulgent, stoned, brilliant guitar solos?
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:27pm Flash Strap:

man I haven't seen Picture Show in so long. Time for a rewatch! Also, I really like whole passages of Nickelodeon, even though I'm not sure I like the film as a whole

i never have seen Nickleodeon...

I've heard of Saint Jack but didn't know it was filmed in secret. That makes it more interesting.
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 9:31pm geezerette:

Agree! I don't think it's a great film but enjoyed it anyway.
Another thing about"Picture Show" is the stunning B&W photography. Sucker for that.
Ha! Cheers then Evan!
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:31pm Flash Strap:

has a pretty good scene where Ryan O'Neal and Burt Reynolds basically box their way through and over a whole dustbowl farm. It's weird to watch them fight, esp. since O'neal is the better of the two

On a different theme, the last film I saw was the FMU doc, Sex and Broadcasting. Everyone should see it who hasn't yet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 9:33pm melinda:

70s films set in Texas makes me think of Days of Heaven. Though I believe it was filmed in the Dakotas or somewhere like that.
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 9:36pm geezerette:

melinda,is it on a streaming service?

"Days of Heaven" is a great silent film. Loose the soundtrack with it's awful narration and it's a magnificent movie. But then, I like silent movies.
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 9:37pm geezerette:

King Khan,wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 9:41pm melinda:

Sex and Broadcasting is on amazon, and I think maybe Netflix too. I haven't seen Days of Heaven in a while but I remember finding the Linda Manz character and her narration interesting (I think it was her). Mostly it was the cinematography.
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:42pm Flash Strap:

the 4 singles from this project are pretty outrageous, highly recommended: khannibalism.bandcamp.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 9:42pm melinda:

Oh, it's Ian Svenonius. He's great. performed locally a few times and I always miss it.
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 9:45pm Little Danny:

Oh wow "Black Power" is just great. There's a bit of the Chambers Brothers' "Time Has Come Today" to it
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:49pm Flash Strap:

This track is hysterical to me. Black Stalin. Robot voice+squigglesynths. What the hell, what a joy
Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:49pm Flash Strap:

Agree, LD
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/12/17 9:50pm melinda:

It is kinda crazy, in a good way. Robot knows the truth.
Avatar    Thu. 1/12/17 9:51pm quinn:

Avatar Thu. 1/12/17 9:52pm Flash Strap:

That documentary sounds good.

g, i wouldn't have known i am familiar with Bogdonovitch; but the last picture show is one of my all-time favorites.
