Wish you'd been there with us (bearing psychotropics, and no rugrats),

It's hard to believe any politician here in Deutschland, apart from the odd far-right kook, could rake hay from this issue. Yet the churls back home still moan about "marriage protection" and "unit discipline." (The latter, as you may recall, was a big club hit for En Esch back in '94.) Herr Rich frames the issue with his customary acuity...

Soderbergh's exegesis on commodification stars actress Sasha Grey, who has made quite a name for herself as an exemplar of contemporary porn. For those unfamiliar with her work in this realm, you can exhaust yourselves here.

There are grousers, of course.
"Not all artists are willing to go along with a retailer or cable company’s marketing strategy, however. Although few artists or managers will voice their complaints publicly for fear of retaliation, many say that retailers’ requests for content are effectively demands, and that refusal to comply can result in diminished promotion. Managers and some labels also argue that alterations to an album made on behalf of a retailer can compromise it artistically, breaking up the unity of a creative product and including material that is by definition secondary.
“'The more content you make available, the less interesting the artist becomes,' said Jeff Antebi of Waxploitation Artists, which manages Gnarls Barkley and Danger Mouse."
By all fucking means...
Oh well, by this metric, and considering our monthly tsunami of (cough) content, I reckon we're down in the sewer with Werner Peiner.

Synopsis: aleatory test #326. Methodology: analysis of linear stacking processes, edit diminution sequences, and exaggerated mastering exercises. Frequency traffic both abetted and ameliorated through the use of randomly selected auto-equalization curves. Rock the fuck out.

Bob Rafelson directed Head from Jack Nicholson's ayahuasca/dextromethorphan-infused screenplay, and on release it went straight into Rudy Vallee's zinc-plated megaphone. Of course, it ain't perfect, but as a searingly lucid document of self-immolation, the Monkees predated everyone, even the Stooges' pean to Heraclitus' ultimate notion of logos, Metallic K.O. (Ja, it's that prescient, and often as lacerating, although it must be noted that "Swami (Plus Strings)" isn't quite on par with "I Got Nothing.") Head's final sequences are especially outré; its ending is perfect. Undergirding themes of suicide, drowning, falling, entrapment, and collapse were perhaps more seditious than the film's creators intended, as implosion and wanton calumny followed. No matter - it stands, it works, and, despite its modest budget and middling backlot origins (bridge and dune scenes notwithstanding), and its failure to connect with much of anyone 41 years ago, it is the model.
