. . .Dary!

Spent hours yesterday playing this with Von and Yonina. I swear it's every old school metal fan's dream come true (the in-game soundtrack has all the faves from Sabbath to Savatage). Plus, it stars the incorrigible Jack Black as the reluctant savior who is on the path from roadie-hood to rock god-dom. Despite the sometimes awkward car controls and a host of other kinks having Ozzy, Lenny, etc in there is more than enough to make this thoroughly enjoyable.

Poldo and I went to see Archenemy last night and all I got was this stupid shirt (plus the Black Earth album, rare, I'm told). Wait, where the fuck is that stupid shirt? Ah well, t'was a blast raising devil horns through the night anyway. Plus we bumped into my katukayo and erotica author Karl Kaufman.

The Amott Bros were in top shredding form and Angela Gossow is a gorgeous, blond angel of the apocalypse clad in amazingly tight leather pants and possessing vocal and bootylicious, uh, talent. Who got that towel she threw after rubbing it on her ass?

From Nerve, one of the best sex and culture institutions for my money, here are transgressive, exploitationesque movies that are so wasak they'll make you want to sleep alone. Well, at least for tonight. Best not watch with the boy/girlfriend.

I think I've only seen three out of the whole list.

, the new movie from fifty-three-year-old Danish bad-boy Lars von Trier, has been called “the most talked-about” new film of the season. Talking about it sure beats watching it. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, where its reception suggested an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The International Edition. Von Trier, whose provocations are usually carefully thought out for maximum manipulative effect, reportedly wrote the movie to dig himself out of a crippling depression that had rendered him unable to work, abandoning thoughts of narrative logic and cobbling the script together with images and events largely taken from his dreams. The results definitely put the one about reporting to biology class naked in perspective.

Antichrist opens with married couple Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg having graphically depicted sex, in slow motion and to the accompaniment of an aria from a Handel opera, while their baby does a triple-gainer out the high window. What follows includes the most convincing-looking genital mutilations that you can get on an eleven-million-dollar budget. (Pretty convincing-looking, unfortunately.) Is von Trier right in calling Antichrist the most important film of his career? One thing’s for sure: it might just be the worst date movie ever made. But there are other contenders. If you’re looking to nip a new relationship in the bud, throw a few of these on your Netflix queue."

Or Henry Rollins rants about why he hates the "new dance" shit they put out and try to call music. Great stuff from the Shock and Awe DVD.

Also try to check out his autobiog prose book Get In the Van. He's intermitently obnoxious and elegant but you can't be more brutally honest than this.

Find out why you are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. Soap up HERE.

A genre of literature that focuses on characters who feel confined by the norms and expectations of society and who break free of those confines in unusual and/or illicit ways. Because they are rebelling against the basic norms of society, protagonists of transgressive fiction may seen mentally ill, anti-social and/or nihilistic. The genre deals extensively with taboo subject matters such as drugs, sex, violence, incest, pedophilia and crime.

It graphically explores such topics as incest and other aberrant sexual practices, mutilation, the sprouting of sexual organs in various places on the human body, urban violence and violence against women, drug use, and highly dysfunctional family relationships, and that is based on the premise that knowledge is to be found at the edge of experience and that the body is the site for gaining knowledge.
