i'd like to ejected into space... or failing that have explosives strapped to my body & ejected from a plane with the fuse lit...
Does anyone else find it ironic that a supposedly viral lo-fi TV series
like 'my story' has been made by what is essentially a corporate?
has life, sorry 'my/your_life' really become so cynical?
harry sinclair didnt need big brother to make topless women
& that was a decade or two before youtube/myspace...
Why so spineless in this digital (free-access to media tools) age?
Do filmmakers really have to be on someones payroll nowadays to
try & launch something innovative?
& do u really need to read any more rhetorical questions from me?
i think not....
respect to truly independent film
the rest can kiss the boards ass....
sorry, in the words of the CEO
I so enjoyed the French & Saunders parody of Lord of the Rings - they boviosuly raided the BBC period drama props department & had some fun...
I remember attending one of the epic parties at the big house beside the river, near the Bush Inn in Christchurch... parties there always got shut down by the Police at some point & at this one party I was out in the garden when i saw the police arrive & start throwing everyone out on to the street, so I climbed up a tree & watched proceedings from there.. once everyone had been cleared out of the house I climbed down from the tree only to come face to face with a policeman with a large police dog - I distinctly still remember the dog clamping its jaws on my knee as I climbed down.... fun times!
The other epic christchurch party was in a big house opposite the Arts Centre, it was a moving out party as the house had been sold to developers.... except some skin heads set fire to a large paper mache sculpture in the kitchen & the party ended with this huge house burning to the ground... which would have been ok, no one was hurt, but one of the flatmates who hadnt moved out lost their entire record collection & their goldfish.... its a vivid memory, this massive burning house being watched almost in a trance by party goers & all the surrounding residents.....
I realise this is totally unrelated, but it made me laugh....

re: the feature about P in this weeks Listener,
I couldnt help laugh at the (intentional?) irony
of calling a drug that suppresses hunger the
'Dinner Party Drug'
The article could have been so much more
effective as a deterrent with the addition of
one pair of photos from this site:
If you smoke P go have a look
its the least you can do...
