    • They had a Misfits tribute band at that show that I was on. Obviously , the singer did'nt ''wolf" down Steroids and close the gym every night , so he wore one of those fake plastic "Six Pack Abs" sets people wear when they want to be superheroes for Halloween . HA HA HA. I saw Jerry Only in a Halloween costume , disguised as The Misfits , once.

    • Hollywood-based 'multimediatician' Josh Roush dropped some pleasing video news last week: He's posted his first edition of Video Archives, revolving around old Ghoulardi clips (see embed below). The video clips come from Roush's own collection of bootleg VHS, DVD and digital recordings. Much of his stash is super-rare stuff. 

      Check it out:

    • Re/Search publications issued this brilliant collection of interviews in the early 2000's.  It includes an entertaining lengthy interview with BC.  Much of the discussion focuses on the Childish theory of art and creativity.  This book also has great interviews with Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Henry Rollins and Jello Biafra.

    • Ever get the feeling most of what Chyldish does is sincere until it builds speed and becomes a joke? I love his work and his legacy and have nuthin' but love for him.

    • Taking Punk back to it's late 70's/early 80's roots, it was a place for the displaced to be applauded vs in disgrace. Total non conformist type? BRO! Don't fit in with the metalheads? Come over here with the rest of us. Not into arena-rock or any of the "acceptable" genre's within rock? We're your compadres! Generally a bunch of misfits that did NOT fit in anywhere else. Your race, zip code or parents social status meant nothing here. That's what the "other" groups were for.

      The music was bare bones and played by those that intentionally went against convention. It wasn't about being flashy, destructive or violent. That all came later after the press released their "findings" to the sheeple. This took root and is currently what the masses (who are generally asses) think punk is really about. Do your own homework and you'll find what I'm saying is true.

    • Haha! "Punk culture"... that cracks me up.

      I think you're posing on the wrong site, dude. No one here really gives a rat's ass about "what it means to be a punk"...

    • Hey everyone! I love punk music and I am doing a project on punk culture. I am hoping that I can get some of your perpectives on what it means to be punk and what the culture incompases. :)

      Thanks for your help!! <3

    • Matt - That book is incredible. I'm not one for Western novels, but I've read it twice.

      I'm currently reading the repressings of Jim Thompson's novels. I just started The Transgressors.
      Looking to finish 50 books this year.

    • Made interesting reading, especially as porn becomes mainstream the less demand for porn soundtracks to be put on porn.

      ......But ,  we're getting way far away from the original topic. I do think it's extremely likely Amy Adams' look , here , may well have been based on Poison Ivy. 

      Now I can see the resemblance to her.

    • I agree , but , the current Godzilla movie is a new storyline , not based on previous movies. The sequel is'nt supposed to have anything to do with past storylines , either , except , hopefully , Godzilla will open a tallboy can of whoopass on Ghidorah , Rodan , or another old fave , instead of the practically formless insect things he faced off with in the current one.

    • I'm very heavily into Japanese , Hong Kong and Korean cinema, but wouldn't it be better to write a new Godzilla film?

    •'s not exactly a remake , more of a redux. The idea of bringing in even MORE classic Toho monsters , some just doing very short cameos , as in the original. I still have a hard time figuring out where some of themare ,in teh original. The resemblence to Lux and Seiji to the space villain may be , in part , coincidental. It's a fun picture , tho' , better than some of the new ones I've seen.

      Happy Halloween.

    • Why remake one of the best Godzilla films of all?

      I never even thought of the resemblance to Poison Ivy before. Well, The Cramps were into Godzilla movies, so it should be no surprise that Toho Films pay tribute to The Cramps in the Destroy All Monsters remake.

    • Take a Walk on the Dark Side by R. Gary Patterson.  Probably not what Gaiman had in mind, but I think people from this forum would dig it.  It's all about rock n' roll's fascination with all things dark and spooky.  Deals with the Devil, Crowley fanatics, what to expect when you play certain records backwards, etc.  Good stuff.
