Fuck this whole city and everyone in it

Fuck this whole city and everyone in it. From the row-houses of Astoria to the penthouses on Park Avenue, from the projects in the Bronx to the lofts in Soho. From the tenements in Alphabet City to the brownstones in Park slope to the split-levels in Staten Island. Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn to fucking ash and then let the waters rise and submerge this whole rat-infested place.

I'm a pop culture junkie..


so I just have to share the poster to the new QT movie coming out in August..

loneliness is a bitch

desloaltion row

They're selling postcards of the hanging

They're painting the passports brown

The beauty parlor is filled with sailors

The circus is in town

Here comes the blind commissioner

They've got him in a trance

One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker

The other is in his pants

And the riot squad they're restless

They need somewhere to go

As Lady and I look out tonight

From Desolation Row

Cinderella, she seems so easy

"It takes one to know one," she smiles

And puts her hands in her back pockets

Bette Davis style

And in comes Romeo, he's moaning

"You Belong to Me I Believe"

And someone says," You're in the wrong place, my friend

You better

And the only sound that's left

After the ambulances go

Is Cinderella sweeping up

On Desolation Row

Now at midnight all the agents

And the superhuman crew

Come out and round up everyone

That knows more than they do

Then they bring them to the factory

Where the heart-attack machine

Is strapped across their shoulders

And then the

Is brought down from the castles

By insurance men who go

Check to see that nobody is escaping

3 random pics that sum up my weekend





Or the poster for Staying Alive.. whichever..


Stood in firelight, sweltering. Bloodstain on chest like map of violent
new continent. Felt cleansed. Felt dark planet turn under my feet and
knew what cats know that makes them scream like babies in night. Looked
at sky through smoke heavy with human fat.. The
cold, suffocating dark goes on forever and we are alone. Live our
lives, lacking anything better to do. Devise reason later. Born from
oblivion; bear children, hell-bound as ourselves, go into oblivion.
There is nothing else. Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we
imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we
choose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague
metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate
that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It’s us.
Only us. Streets stank of fire. The void breathed hard on my heart,
turning it's illusions to ice, shattering them. Was reborn then, free
to scrawl own design on this morally blank world.

A purchase


There is a dvd store by office that sells cheap DVDS. Today on my lunch hour I picked up (for $2.99) a three disc dvd set of.. INSIDE THE ACTORS STUDIO! Hosted by the mighty:


James Lipton

featuring interviews with:


Barbara Streisand


Paul Newman


Robert Redford


Clint Eastwood

Oh yeah baby. TV party. My house. I got the DVDS, you bring the popcorn.

Whatever happened to...

These other legends of the mail order album?


Zamfir: Master of the pan flute


Boxcar Willie


Slim Whitman

Love '76

Anybody remember this guy? He was one of the first singers to try and sell his albums on TV.. as his wikipedia entry states "Using a city-by-city marketing strategy, he and his partners began their Love ‘76, Ad campaign on late-night TV in New York, New York on January 1, 1976 targeting all six New York metropolitan channels 70 to 100 times a week. The album, Do I Love You, a two-record set took off slowly at first selling 43,000 copies in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey in 13 weeks. After signing with Private Stock Records, in April 1976 they began the same campaign in Los Angeles and Las Vegas and the album began to sell on an unprecedented level attracting widespread media attention."

Ladies and gentlemen I give you a mood rock experience called Love 76....

It's hard to pick exactly what part of this video I like best..

Could it be the blond looking longingly? Or maybe the narrator talking about "The excitement that is Peter Lemongello on stage" while the guy is barely moving? His leisure suits? The fact that the 8 track tape costs more than the record?

There's just so much here. Watch with wonder. You'll pick up more every time you watch it. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to know what lurks in the heart of Peter.

New Quentin Tarantino flick!!!!

Quentin Tarrantino does WW2

"And I want my scalps"

Fuck yeah!

I don't care..

What anybody says..



is better than this:

Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face.The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save Us!"....and I'll look down, and whisper, "No"


A conversation


This is an IM conversation I had with my friend Jason this morning.


Jason: there's a midnight showing of Muppets Take Manhattan tomorrow

Me: I'll only go if you can get me some good acid

Jason: Hell, I'd drop acid for the first time if there's muppets involved. But it still probably couldn't be weirder than Meet the Feebles.


I think he may be right...

Another for my list


Jennifer Connelly. How could I have forgotten her? She's incredible.

Super Obama


This was the most ubiquitous image from comic con. Posters, t-shirts beer cozies.. This image was everywhere. Painted by renowned comic artist Alex Ross. I think it's a companion piece to his earlier take on Dubya...

Every band has an "Andy"


Every band has one. An "Andy". Named after Andy Taylor form Duran Duran, the "Andy" of the band is the one band member that nobody cares about. They are never interviewed, pictures of these members rarely decorate walls in teenagers rooms unless they are photoed with the rest of the band. They are an afterthought and barely considered "that one guy". Here's a list of a few "Andys"


Mick Mars of Motley Crue. The only reason this guy is an "Andy" is because he's just so fucking ugly. Seriously. This guy is as ugly as the day is long. And we're talking one of those days in the arctic circle where the sun never sets for like a month.


Izzy Stradlin. The reason poor Izzy gets to be the "Andy" is because he's the most level headed of the early incarnation of Guns'N'Roses. He didn't have Axl's primadonna tendencies, Slash's alcoholism or Steven Adler's serious drug problem. he just wanted to play guitar and maybe smoke cigarettes.


Brad Whitford. of Aerosmith. Did you even know he was in Aerosmith? Would you recognize him if you ran in to him on the street? Didn't think so.


Danny "the monkey" Wood of New Kids On The Block. This one is for Miss Alex. No self respecting preteen of the 80s would say Danny Wood was their fave New Kid. The reason? Guy looks like a straight up orangutan.


Jason Newsted of Metallica. To be fair every member of Metallica is pretty high profile, but the fact is that after Cliff Burton's untimely death, the bass player of Metallica is pretty interchangeable. After he left the band went on and is as big as ever.


Ringo Starr. I like Ringo, but he was the underdog in the Beatles. It's ok though he played an important role in creating some of the most important music of all time.


John Paul Jones. Led Zeppelin. Well, duh.

3 random pics that sum up my weekend




You wouldn't like him when he's angry



Got to see the first 18 mins of Watchmen. The title sequence made my jaw drop. I'll never hear Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A'changin'" in the same way again.



Got to meet one of my heroes - Joss Whedon creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
