Went onto Facebook to post a new youtube link for Savage Sons of Ya Ho Wa and ran across this:

Khmer Oldies Rock-n-Roll- VOL.01


I haven't seen that, no. And, to be honest, Earth Girls... should have been three to four times better.

Also, I never realized it was a Julien Temple film before.


CCR--Cosmo's Factory

and

John Cale--"Barracuda"


Finished watching The Dead but there doesn't seem to be a trailer on youtube. :(

Also watched

Dead Man which I didn't enjoy as much as I did when I was 18;

Dillinger which is awesome and features Warren Oates running around screaming "I'm John Dillinger!" and sexually assaulting Michelle Phillipps of The Mamas and Papas fame;

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari which makes this post actually international; and

Earth Girls Are Easy.

Tonight my leftie coalition group is holding a screening of Pride so I can finally cross that off my to-see list.


Finished Hardy two nights ago. Cried for an hour.

Finished Brackett this morning. It was highly enjoyable.

Also read,

Black History and the Class Struggle, No. 21: Obama: CEO of Racist American System

and Black History and the Class Struggle, No. 24: 150 Years Since the Emancipation Proclamation--Finish the Civil War! For Black Liberation Through Socialist Revolution! which isn't on the internet, I guess.

Next up, the trials and tribulations of Hester Prynne which I last read in Junior English. Or did I? I didn't read a lot of the books that were assigned to us back then...

Apparently, unbeknownst to me until just now, The Mekons played in New Hampshire yesterday.

:(


That Vashti Bunyan album is the shiznit. But I have a thing for twee.


[Borodin Quartet] Dmitri Shostakovich - String Quartet No. 8 in C minor Op. 110


Got a copy out of the library; finished "Part 5--The Woman Pays" and read the first two chapters of "Part 6--The Convert."

Gee, Hardy's got a real talent for depicting hateful men, huh?


Seem to have misplaced Tess again. Was delighted to see the return of Eric John Stark in "The Enchantress of Venus." Also,

Black History and the Class Struggle, No. 19: New Orleans Racist Atrocity


Monday Morning Jazz Brunch

Wayne Shorter--Juju


In addition to the movies above, I watched way too much television on my vacation.

Saw more Supernatural then I would have liked, an episode of Game of Thrones which, comparing to the parts I've read, bores me, Buffy up to the introduction of Faith and Season 4 of 30 Rock which, with its episodes about striking pages, unionized South Asian janitors and its depiction of Boston as populated by nothing but drunken, violent hockey fans all named Sean, was a real hoot.

Started watching John Huston's adaptation of Joyce's "The Dead," but didn't get very far.


My mother brought home a copy of Go Set a Watchman from the school library and asked me if I wanted to read it. I have never even read To Kill... so I passed.

Back in NH, so I guess it's back to Brackett and Hardy.

F$~*ing Angel Claire...

I only got to watch the first half; pretty intense shiznit.

After four attempts, finally made it through the whole thing. Worth it, I thought.


Fantastic Mr. Fox.

I like Farmer Bean.

Also, as I will be traveling tomorrow,

Funk for Friday!

All three volumes of Prince's Hits

Dirty Mind live


Books I'm in the middle of on the verge of another Brooklyn vacation:

A Game of Thrones--will maybe read some more today and then go to Brooklyn and read La Principessa's copy

The Halfling and Other Stories--still put down; I bought this one used at a D&D store in Cambridge where they advertised it as from the library of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sci-Fi Club. Binding's all wrecked and it's held together by a rubber band. I don't dare take it to Brooklyn.

Tess of the D'Urbervilles--Threw it away after it got soaked; hopefully La Principessa has a copy, otherwise, I guess a visit to the Brooklyn Public Library is in order.

Leaves of Grass--will accompany me on the bus.

I think I'll also bring More Soviet Science Ficiton edited by Isaac Asimov and, if after that, I need more reading material, I will throw myself on the mercy of La Principessa's bookshelves.

I'm not a speed reader; I'm a stoned reader. And, yes, I often forget things quickly.

Saw American Hustle the other day and realized I hadn't listened to this one in a long while:

Duke Ellington at Newport 1956

The characters flirted to "Jeep's Blues," but in was "Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue" that (almost? I forget the details now) started a riot.


I didn't purposefully mistreat the book! I left it out in the rain after [bubble bubble bubble]-ing and being distracted by company.

Sheesh, you guys.

There, there, Lord Snow, there, there. It was printed back in 1960. It had a long, full life, Lord Snow, and is now making friends with overly-verbose 19th-century novels in Biblioheaven. It's okay, let it all out. There, there.

So you are the reason for that cautionary tingling I got in my spine! I just knew that someone out there was mistreating a book. Hrmph.

Pfft. I got it at a library sale for fifty cents. Every other paragraph was underlined and somebody had conveniently written "VIP" (Very Important Passage?) with an * every fourth page.


American Hustle (which I thought was pretty overrated, though the chicks were hawt)
Let the Fire Burn (again)

and

Django Unchained again.

Latter, I had the pleasure to introduce to the Nigerian Princess who had written a paper on black masculinity in the film even though, she sheepishly admitted, she hadn't seen the movie.

Immensely enjoying going back and forth between Hardy and Brackett.

For example,

"The crooked lane leading from their own parish to Mellstock ran along the lowest levels in a portion of its length, and when the girls reached the most depressed spot they found that the result of the rain had been to flood the lane over-shoe to a distance of fifty yards. This would have been no serious hindrance on a week-day; they would have clicked through it in their high pattens and boots quite unconcerned; but on this day of vanity, this Sun's-day, when flesh went forth to coquet with flesh while hypocritically affecting business with spiritual things; on this occasion for wearing their white stockings and thin shoes, and their pink, white, and lilac gowns, on which every mud spot would be visible, the pool was an awkward impediment. They could hear the church-bell calling--as yet nearly a mile off."

Compared with,

"I shot Laura three times, carefully, between the shoulders."

Mingus and Dolphy perform a Duke standard live in Norway


Got to a chapter past where I got to last time in A Game of Thrones and put it down for now.

Now plowing through Tess and, to lighten the mood, The Halfling and Other Stories by Leigh Brackett.


"More's the pity."

--George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

One who was an expert on the humiliations incident to being a slave remarked,[7] "Does a slave look dissatisfied?"

--Herbert Aptheker, quoting Frederick Douglass, American Negro Slave Revolts

She was so tired after her long day and her walk that she confided her trouble to him--that she had been waiting ever since he saw her to have their company home, because the road at night was strange to her.

--Thomas Hardy, Tess of the d'Urbervilles

"But we came."

--Leigh Brackett, "The Dancing Girl of Ganymede" in The Halfling and Other Stories

Neu!


I read books I expect not to like all the time. Mostly, I end up being wrong.

One of the many, many benefits of a life stoned immaculate.

Thank you, I will pass the word along, Lord Dice.

He complained that Butler was the only black female sci-fi/fantasy author he could find at the Nashua Barnes and Noble and that Kindred was the only book they had by her. I then cuffed him for thinking that he could find a wide variety of books at the Barnes and Noble.


In the quest for intersectional sci-fi/fantasy, Mr. Comrade went out and bought the Nigerian Princess an Octavia Butler book. Kindred, IIRC. She reports that it's very good, but not too sci-fi-ish (although, I guess, it involves time travel).

On top of that, Mr. Comrade looked up one Valjeanne Jeffers, couldn't find any of her poetry, friended her on Facebook, and now, apparently, Ms. Jeffers keeps sending him messages which he then turns around and uses to woo the Nigerian Princess.

Nerds do it better!

In my own reading, just finished the chapter on Nat Turner in Aptheker. Man, he (the latter) might have been a ground-breaking historian, but a prose stylist he sure ain't. Thankfully, the book if full of footnotes making the book only half as long as the page count indicates.


If the internet is to be believed, today is the 45th anniversary of the release of Workingman's Dead.

Smoke 'em if you got 'em!
