um, ya... quebec electro. what can i say? this song isn't on the album, doesn't look like the same person but it is. wig i assume. something about this video really does it for me, perhaps the skin tight purple sequined one piece?

antena- camino del sol (numero reissue)
i first heard this music via a japanese exchange student that lived with my family when i was a teenager and it's haunted me ever since.

bryan ferry- boys and girls

MY FAVE RECORDS OF 2010 PART 1

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

wow, 2010... what a year.
did you know that there were more natural disasters this last year than any other year EVER? and guess what, it's only gonna get worse! and WE'RE DOING IT! we can sit back comfortably and update our blogs and profiles and feel safe and lucky we don't live somewhere like haiti... but it's coming our way. maybe soon. all of a sudden things like high speed wireless internet will seem less important than finding clean water. but i digress, these are just the kinds of things that keep me up at night.
who cares about all that when you can make lists of all the cool records you bought last year with your disposable income! anyway...

COMEDY



truly a master of stage banter...

NUDE FOR SATAN (1974)



yes, the above trailer features a bit of nudity (oddly enough for a film called "nude for satan"), sorry if that's a bummer for you...
anyway, usually with this kind of italian sleaze/horror film the original title is translated into english designed to appeal to the kind of people in america who would go see a film like this (mainly sleazebags, i assume). the italian title would normally be something like "dreams of the devil's night" or something marginally poetic like that, but not this one... nope, this one is just NUDA PER SATANA. you pretty much know what you're in for from the get go. however, the overall shittiness of this film is balanced with a genuinely dreamlike gothic atmosphere and a reasonably interesting soundtrack. the plot is mostly nonsensical and slow-moving, but it hardly matters, there's enough psychedelic imagery and laughably terrible effects (the fucking spider?? what is that, a football with some pipe cleaners glued to it?), not to mention NUDITY, to keep things interesting. anyway, enjoyable, but strictly for fans of the genre (aka: sleazebags, aka: me).
