Hellboy and Dr. Strange. by brett weldele

Dream Supernatural Hero Team: these two, and Harry Dresden (plus Michael Carpenter), plus The Doctor (no, not the Gallifreyan). Maybe Sandman too, but he’s maybe a bit too powerful to make it fun. He’s a god where the rest are just mages or wizards or super-powered. Let’s throw John Constantine in instead.

Childish Gambino @ Brixton Academy, London 19/08/14 (by The405)

One thing I totally wasn’t expecting from Baby’s First Rap Gig: there were more instruments on stage than I’ve seen at any rock gig I’ve been to. Two drum kits, for one thing. Bunch of people on stage, playing a variety of instruments live, rather than simply having an MC on the beats (not to denigrate what a good MC can do - just to say: I prefer live instruments, it’s why I went to a show rather than listening at home).

I don’t tend to take photos at gigs, coz they always come out bad, they disrupt the experience, and there’s gonna be a shooter getting some good photos anyway, so what’s the point?

Proof.

Told me I was awful and that shit did not phase me
Tell me how I suck again, my memory is hazy
“You’re my favorite rapper now!” Yeah, dude, I better be
Or you can fuckin’ kiss my ass: Human Centipede
You wanna see my girl? I ain’t that dumb
You wanna see my girl? Check Maxim
"Man, why does every black actor gotta rap some?”
I don’t know, all I know is I’m the best one

[Bridge]
It’s a bonfire, turn the lights out
I’m burnin’ everything you muthafuckas talk about


IT WAS INDEED A BONFIRE

For a long time he didn’t take hallucinogenics, then a few years ago he had a bad trip. He wanted to take something that would help him understand a time-traveller in his novel. Sure enough, salvia did the trick. Only too much so. “This drug picked me up and threw me into the bushes. Really awful bramble bushes. I went in and disappeared from the world to such an extent that I just became salad with attitude. I couldn’t drive for four months.”

How did Dorian cope? “My wife is very understanding of things. She was pleased I had interfaced with Thor on the north Wiltshire Downs … ” Could she cope with his behaviour? “No, she was on the edge of losing it.” Were the kids scared? “Yes, because Dad wasn’t like Dad. I went to live in the annex round the back of our house.”

Does he think he’s as crazy as many people do? For once, he shakes his head. “I don’t think people think I’m crazy any more. I think sometimes they think I’m a genius, and the difference between a genius and bonkers is that bonkers tends to not conclude a project very often. That’s why I think people are more generous with their estimations now, because at least I finish them.”

Does he think he’s a genius? “I think I’m totally visionary because I live in a visionary state. I think I’ve created works of genius.”

AU where Gryffindor are the stuck up, blood purist house. They’re the white knights of Hogwarts and Wizarding Britain-but knights ride roughshod over the peasantry.

from ‘The Four Loves’ by C.S. Lewis: “The danger is that this partial indifference or deafness to outside opinion, justified and necessary though it is, may lead to a wholesale indifference or deafness. The most spectacular instances of this can be seen not in a circle of friends but in a Theocratic or aristocratic class. We know what the Priests in Our Lord’s time thought of the common people. The Knights in Froissart’s chronicles had neither sympathy nor mercy for the “outsiders”, the churls or peasants. But this deplorable indifference was very closely intertwined with a good quality. They really had, among themselves, a very high standard of valour, generosity, courtesy and honour. This standard the cautious, close-fisted churl would have thought merely silly. The Knights, in maintaining it, were, and had to be, wholly indifferent to his views. They “didn’t give a damn” what he thought. If they had, our own standard today would be the poorer and the coarser for it. But the habit of “not giving a damn” grows on a class. To discount the voice of the peasant where it really ought to be discounted makes it easier to discounthis voice when he cries for justice or mercy. The partial deafness which is noble and necessary encourages the wholesale deafness which is arrogant and inhuman.”

Gryffindor’s all about chivalry, but that word comes from cheval, horse. Chivalry is the behaviour of a mounted knight. An aristocrat. Someone born and raised to think himself Better Than You.

and the Slytherins? ‘These cunning folk use any means to achieve their ends’, and Slytherin house is all about ambition. In other words…merit over bloodline. Why appoint a pureblood to a post over a more qualified muggleborn, just on the basis of that blood? Why try to purge Wizarding culture of Muggle influences, when Muggles have produced so many interesting and useful things and ideas that a clever wizard could turn to his own advantage? Why bully and make an enemy of supersmart Hermione Granger, when it would be far more in your self-interest to make friends with her and have her help you out with your schoolwork?

and why would Slytherins follow a Dark Lord? Because let’s face it; Dark Lords are nuts and getting close to them in any way is hazardous to your health. If the forces of Light don’t strike you down, the Dark Lord himself might well, in a fit of pique. And anyway-while the Dark Lord is in power, there’s no room at the top because he’s occupying it. How is that a good thing if you’re ambitious?

but Gryffindors, well, knights must serve a king…unquestioning obedience to one’s king is a virtue among knights. And a king proposing a return to the virtuous olden days, to chivalry and honour and the lower orders knowing their place if they knew what was good for them…

Do his wife, Dorian, and their two daughters, Albany and Avalon, ever tell him to give it a rest? “Yes, all the time! I was banned from even using the word krautrock for about five years after the krautrock book. My youngest remembers arriving at a stone circle and my eldest going, ‘No stones! No stones!’ Then I was banned from saying, ‘I love these stones.’ Oh yeah, it must be hard work being married to me.”

I give him a look, and he says, no, he’s being serious. “It’s like a cloak of invisibility.” He says English people pride themselves on dressing unobtrusively. “Well, this is maximum ostentation, isn’t it? It keeps the pseudo-intellectuals down.” Because he seems to be screaming for attention, they refuse to give him the satisfaction. “‘Don’t notice him, don’t notice him. Who does he think he is?’” And that suits him perfectly, he says, enabling him to quietly get on with his business.

Nobody’s lonely but me
Everybody’ asleep in somebody’s arms
C’mon and put yours around me”

Got into Moneybrother via some music he re-recorded for Super (2010). Really digging it.

That said, one person deserves a SUPER shout-out – my friend and fellow film director, Rob Zombie.  Rob’s music is highly sought after for use in film soundtracks.  But Rob was kind enough to allow us to use one of his most famous tracks for nearly nothing.  Not only was this a great coup as the song sounds terrific in the film, it also helped us in showing other acts that even the enormously popular, massively famous guys were willing to let us use their tracks out of love for independent film and unique projects. For years now I’ve been telling people Rob is not only one of my favorite film directors, but he’s also one of the greatest guys all around.  He proved that to me once again with this latest unselfish act.
