Mink Stole as Taffy in Female Trouble

Kind of a short list this week. Not sure why that is, but what I can say is that there are some really great articles linked to below.

  1. Underground figures invaded mainstream newspapers this week. First, the Alexandria Gazette Packet has a very lovely profile of the legendary Mink Stole.
  2. Then, the Vancouver son profiled bad boy pornographer and avant-garde troublemaker Bruce LaBruce.
  3. Now you can download the amazing soundtrack to Jaimz Asmundson’s trippy short film The Magus.
  4. Mark Savage has tons of great photos from his latest naughty production, the awesomely titled Pond Scum, which looks very classic transgression-ish just from the pictures of star Renae Boult.
  5. I always really enjoy reading Bill Plympton’s reviews of classic animated films. They’re usually very brief, but direct and insightful. Most recently, he checked out and loathed The Great Mouse Detective.
  6. Jack Sargeant has a nice, short write-up of the always controversial Salo: 120 Days of Sodom, a movie so shocking that while I know I’ve seen it, I remember very little about it.
  7. Alessandro Cima reviews Raymond Salvatore Harmon’s art terrorism manifesto, BOMB, and takes some issue with it, while enjoying it at the same time.
  8. Like Chopping Mall, I’m also completely sick of zombie movies — especially since they’ve become so mainstream — but this review of France’s La Horde makes the film interesting enough to check out sometime.
  9. Rhizome has a semi-quick, but insightful interview with the art duo Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt).
  10. Wicked Channel is introduced to the brilliance of Bob Moricz, via the film Palace of Stains, and isn’t quite sure what to make of it.
  11. Professor Chutry analyzes what might be fueling Redbox’s business model and challenges the theories of fellow theorist, Wheeler Winston Dixon.
