y’all know by now that i am horrible – HORRIBLE – about answering my emails. But this one got me to work, cuz it’s a hobby of mine, figuring out the source of music in porno films. A reader writes (or is that a writer writing?): “I was wondering if you had any info on the song / singer / title of the music in scene 2 of Cruising the Castro, the scene with the hot truck driving blond stud that picks up and royally fucks the the hot 20 something after showing him around a home he is renovating. It’s an all time favorite scene and the song haunts me.” And after 5 or 6 watches/listens, and a bunch of googling, I’m just stumped – and now it’s haunting me, too!
Anyone know who does the tune (it starts about 3+ minutes into this 10-minute clip)?
on our visit to the Wall Street Occupiers last weekend, it was disturbing and amusing to see that the NYPD feels they have to protect the Charging Bull (AKA Wall Street Bull)
i got the new album in the mail last week, but hadn’t had a chance to really sit down and listen to it on the ol’ stereo, immersed in the cool cool package – (limited edition) – so nice to have actual stuff to read that’s not a teeny tiny CD – and while not 12 inch vinyl size, funny how the Manual Edition of Biophilia is practically the same size and shape of an iPad. Very fun to go to the apps on the iPad, back to the packaging, to see what instruments are being played, then just lying back and just listening, her beautiful voice and odd, intriguing, magical new instruments filling the room – taking it all in. By the way, the above tunes are NOT from the special 2nd disc that came with the special edition, but more recent live recordings from her show October 16th in Reykjavík – she’s got a half dozen more shows there over the next 10 days – tickets still available – oh if only i could…. sigh. Anyhoo, Moon and Cosmogony are still my faves, but coming up a strong 3rd is Mutual Core – can’t wait to see that live!
So, after 4 days of non-stop loud loud loud, annoying the neighbors with Biophilia, I think I have successfully broken in the new album.
AKA Nick Rodgers, Larry LeBlanc – who you may remember from such films as Rough Cut, The Grease Monkeys, Hot Truckin’, The Idol, Malibu Days: Big Bear Nights
, and Colt Films’ Coming To the End
From the magazine Colt Men 2 (1975), Mike Morris and Paul Storr stop off at a highway restaurant, and spot TOBY across the room. But look at what they are drinking! So, someone is drinking milk + Pepsi, milk + beer, Pepsi + beer, or all three – ewwwwww!
Well, whoever drank whichever combination, it seemed to have done the trick, eh?
