  1. I think you're thinking of Once Upon a Time in the West. Fabulous Morricone soundtrack in that one as well. And Charles Bronson *sigh*
  2. T-shirts from American Apparel. Sweat shop free based here in downtown LA. Great cuts,good colors and dead cheap. I've been living in tanks all summer. American Apparel
  3. I think I got Swept Away in my earlier post Tana. I would also add Wertmuller's Seven Beauties . In thinking about Fellini I would like to add The Clowns, a documentary he made in the 70's that offers wonderful insight into his obsessions/recurrent imagery of circus life. There is a remarkable clown fashion show, staged much like the Cardinal pagentry scene in Roma that's exquiste - a seamless parade of white clowns, one more glorious than the other. Definitely get a chance to view this movie.
  4. Yes, The Gospel as well. Christ as a Marxist. I'd forgotten about that one.
  5. I would add: Fist full of Dollars A Few Dollars More Maybe Le Streghe (Passolini/De Sica) Decamaron Salo Double Bill of: Spider's Stratagem The Conformist Two Women Garden of the Finzi-Continis Death in Venice Rossellini's Paisan Rocco and His Brothers Swept Away
  6. I'm thinking Antonioni had Vanessa Redgrave's hair in Blowup dyed to match Monica's in Red Desert. That's so hot. Now I'm going to have to watch them both again, back to back. I's like watching Bunuel'sDiscreet Charm back to back with Phantom d'Libertie . Same actors, same sets, one big surrealist dream...
  7. Double post (because I am an excitable girl)
  8. I'd go with Red Desert over L'Avventura. Huh. I haven't seen Red Desert, so I can't say one way or the other. Anyway, it's my colleague who's doing the programming; it's been pretty much out of my control (with the exception of Scipio Africanus- hooray for Fascist propaganda epics, classical-style!) If there's interest, I'll post the list when I get it. Of course, if I were the king of the world, I would issue a edict ordering the immediate issue of The Conformist on DVD. The Conformist YES. *swoon* Images that fill my dreams. Dominque and Sandra turning the tango on the danc
  9. L'Avventura ahh, don't get me started on Monica Vitti...
  10. As do I, and in comparing the two Blows side by side, the launching story point for both is a murder. But while in Blow Out we know it's happened and the quest is to prevent another, in Blow Up it's ambiguous and ultimately may not really matter. And that's why I like it.

    Yeah, but now what if KD did "Milkshake". Can you imagine
  12. The Ritz was very cool indeed- I saw OMD there too - they were friends whom I'd first met in 1980 when they played Hurrah's - didya ever go there? Sure. My brother was in a few bands and I used to tail around like a puppy. Magique, SNAFU, Max's. Saw a blistering Ian Hunter at Savoy. Ha - I wonder if I slept with him And what about... Danceteria!?! Definitely had some fun there.
  13. Figure out what it's worth to you to do this. If you're cooking just for him and a couple of friends, you could do your rate and then add on server and food costs. But be sure to figure in shopping time, gas for your car, wear and tear on your stuff. Are you cooking out of your house or his? If it's yours there's water/gas/cleanup to be factored. If it's his so much the better. So what are you worth? Twenty five - thirty five an hour? A ten hour day=$350. One server @$20 per hour with a 5 hour minimum =$100.(LA prices). Figure in your food costs. Offer menus with different prices points.
  14. Ah, c'mon the scene after the YardBirds play and the guitar is smashed up and everyone's fighting for it and Hemmings gets it and in the context of the club it's the ultimate and then he walks out the door carrying the broken guitar neck and realizes it means nothing - it's all about the moment in that movie. What's real and not - Verushka writhing on the floor - Redgrave turning her head in the photo as the shot is fired- Hemmings picking up the mime's tennis ball (notice the sound of the ball is heard when he throws it back to those lame hippies), Antonioni's use of pure visual to tell

  16. what would you like to say about De Palma? Much as I like Blow Out, I much prefer Blow Up. I heart Antonioni. But what ever happened to Nancy Allen? She was such a groovy little actress.
  17. my musical interest peaked from 5th grade to college, pretty much covers all of the 80's. In no particular order Post punk, new wave, rockabilly, raves, euro disco, rap, break dancing, glam rock, heavy metal, deathrock, retro-hippy types, mod and more that I can't recall at the moment. I don't remember much. I hope your drugs were good. excesses of the 70's going into the 80's. sometimes the parents of other kids provided us with drugs. I had excesses of the 70's going into the 80's and the 90's....I'm still extremely excessive. And parents drugs were always interesting - all
  18. I KNOW (And the other hairdressers in town say SUCH terrible things about him...)
  19. That's a great song. Dave Wakeling has such a beautiful voice. I loved English Beat as well - "Twist and Crawl" / "Save it for later" / "Mirror in the bathroom" - solid tunes that will make me swoon time and time again.
  20. That's Jonanthan Antin. He's a big ponce. Just ignore him and maybe the tv show will go away...

  22. I am continually amazed at what is now Muzak. Billy Idol's White Wedding? "Audio Imaging" is the thing now and, as GrantK says, the music changes with the target audiences. Fly I knew we were fucked and going down hard when "Lust for Life" was the soundtrack to Carnival Cruises. Followed by Buzzcocks "What do I get" for a car commercial. *sigh* I hate my generation. Sellouts.

    How is Penelope these days? She is an old friend of mine way back from the Avengers. Is she still fooling around with that acoustic mandolin hippie schtick, or did she bust out with some punk rock? Avengers were a great band - they opened for the Pistols at Winterland in S.F.
  24. For San Francisco: "San Franciscans are open-minded and sex-positive for the most part. They're interested in figuring out a lot of options here." A good friend spent much of her sexual coming out in S.F. When she went to the gyn for a check- up, the doctor asked her what flavor she liked. My friend, who had not come out at that point said "I don't know, I'm still deciding." The doc started her exam, put the speculum in and said "Hello, San Francisco!"
