Sweetness.

I've got Riffifi sitting in the DVD player, but I haven't had the nuts and berries to sit down and watch it. Something about the utterly rotten experience I had with a scratched disc of Les Diaboliques and the whole French Connection between . . . I can't believe I'm trying to wuss out of a film because of a scratched disc trauma. Divin' into a 3-foot-deep pool here,

For Starters

I would probably rent the top 20 on IMDB in the film noir category, on a whim.

Japanese horror that was totally interesting for me . . .

We've got the history between us, you and I . . . also this whole post gets into a bunch of horror movie talk.

And then there was Audition . . .

I liked Happiness of the Katakuris for the insane dark comedy that it was . . .

Looooove love love Battle Royale . . .

On Battle Royale . . . it's straight-up MTV-Japan-meets-Lord of the Flies . . . and speaking of similar man hunts man things like "The Most Dangerous Game" . . .

One of my most favorite b-films of all time is Surviving the Game with Ice T and Rutger Hauer.

If you check back through early-mid 2004 archives, I probably have a bunch of other films I wrote about . . . I apologize for the mess . . . I'm missing a bunch of photos from the Great Backslide to Michigan in December 2004, when I had to close out my CA account.

it was very surreal. i felt like washing my eyeballs afterwards.
i went back and replayed some scenes, but then just went and re-watched the whole film. i like that things were slightly vague at the end (maybe a bit too vague) though the glam looking Suicide Club band and the J-Pop band along side of scenes of blood and gore was an interesting blend of the bizarre.

i had thought that the film would go more in to the mechanics of how the suicide message was being delivered. i understand the web site and the song lyrics, but some people seemed to kill themselves just because it was the 'in' thing to do. maybe that's how trends begin? i was reading about this group of club kids/arty kids in Soho about 10 years or so ago. they were looking for the ugliest shoes that they could possibly find to wear around. one of them found some Hush Puppies at a thrift store in the area and wore them around. his friends went and bought some too and pretty soon they were seen by people wanting to look 'cool', so you had a huge spike in the sales of Hush Puppies shoes. strange stuff.

ah, i found an interesting article on it what's cool. it mentions the Hush Puppy story as well:

I read through that one just now.

Another factoid I learned from Smoking Gun was that K. Cobain was wearing a Half Japanese t-shirt at the time of his One-Star'd demise.

To me, cool usually ends up being decided by kids, but it's more often a whatever that might be affordable to families. The obvious buck of that trend is those Nike Airs from the 1980s. That was far from affordable, all that jazz.

But I see how DeeDee or whoever remarked on how the Japanese loved tech-laden gear, and then I notice that each demographic thinks something else is cool, and I think in this day and age, in the post-target-market segmenting that has happened, every lil' faction has its own cool.

If one thinks about it, when kids were listening to the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, their parents were decidedly 'uncool,' but the rub is that the parents felt likewise. They had their Lawrence Welk and Frank Sinatra and that was that.

You can't pay me to listen to some of this Gen Y shit.

Kids drive the market.

I'd like to get it back to an era where children are those things you never see or hear.
