Super Link 4: "Peter Tscherkassky"



I just recently discovered the films of Peter Tscherkassky; a Austrian experimental filmmaker. He experiments with the cinematographic nature of the film image and material itself along with the abstract psycho-intuitive arbitrary/non-arbitrary arrangement and imaginary ingestion of the fragmentated found footage imagery/sound; usually derived from previously constructed and allocated narratives........And they are pretty damn neat to watch too (if you can't rent a theater and get a copy of real film prints (ha!) then screen them in the dark on the biggest screen possible with the best sound system possible). His film "Outer Space" (1999) (part of his CinemaScope Trilogy (he also likes the cinematic nature of the 2.35:1 anamorphic image (good man!)) and made from footage from the 1981 Sidney J. Furie directed Barbara Hershey genre 'truth fairy' = "The Entity") can be found on "Other Cinema"'s compilation DVD release "Experiments In Terror". As for the rest of his films (especially also his "Instructions For A Light And Sound Machine" (2005)); which really need to be seen, I think those of you who might be interested out there know ways of finding them. Check out his site (http://www.tscherkassky.at/).

Here's a nice bit on "Outer Space" (1999) =
"A young woman, night, an American feature film. She enters a house, a dark corridor, a thriller. While she forces her way into an unknown space together with the viewer, the cinematographic image-producing processes go off the rails all around her. The rooms through which she goes telescope into each other, become blurred, while at the same time the crackling of the cuts and the background noise of the sound track – the sound of the film material itself – becomes louder and more penetrating.The pace becomes frenetic, the woman is being pursued by invisible opponents, she is pushed against a mirror, walls of glass burst, furniture tilts and the cinematographic apparatus which the heroine begins to attack in blind fury also suffers. The images jump and stutter, the perforation holes tilt into the picture, the sound track collapse inwards in a will o’ the wisp destruction scenario – something which only film can do so beautifully. In ten minutes ‘’Outer Space’’ races through the unsuspected possibilities of cinematographic errors – a masterpiece. --Stefan Grissemann"

It's no Ray gun, but it sure does sting!

Holy Smokes! Did you hear?

Of course you did. Steve Irwin got killed by a stingray!

Steve Irwin was apparently attacked by this stingray while he was filming some underwater documentary.

Damn those Thunderbirds!

He should'nt have been swimming in thunderbird territory. That's just dumb.

I suppose we might try and dig up some music from Steve Irwin's theatrical debut
The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002) though I think the only song written for that movie was performed by the Baha Men. ::sigh::

Check out the website, DVD and Video availible Now!


Rest in Peace, Steve Irwin. Even though you totally had it coming.

Super Link 3: "Pre-Cert and The Video Nasties"






In the 1980's, after being whipped to a frenzy by the increasingly more and more outrageous and gory video box cover art, themselves so to compete for shrinking video store shelf space, the powers that be in Britian took it upon themselves to protect the public from what they deemed as the unredeamable films, which were basically all gory or controversial horror or sci-fi films. The so-called "Video Nasties" were born. Video stores rushed to take films off the shelves that made the "Video Nasties" banned films list, some were even destroyed, thus making them highly collectable and creating an instant shopping-collection list for all horror, sci-fi, banned film fans. Here are a couple of sites (http://www.itsonlyamovie.co.uk/ and http://www.pre-cert.co.uk/ , which has a neat random cover scan generating thing) that present the lists and have great databases of both pre-cert and post-cert cover art scans. Ahh, it's like walking thru an old video store. Spot some ones you've never seen before.

Super Link 2: "MTC Europa Video"


north american VHS Video Labels of bygone era. Catagories and cross-referencing illustrated with cover art scans. Catogories include (among others) "Post-Apocalyptic Visions" "1980s Horrorthon" and the (entire?) release run listings of Vestron Video, MEDIA and New World/Concorde labels. Wow! (Now if someone would just put together a cover scan release list of Paragon Video). Great thumb thru/"I remember seeing that one on a video store shelf when I was young and my memory was magical"/"I'm gonna start collecting these" site. Lots of fun. http://mtceuropavideo.com/index.htm

Well after a wonderful feature show, your friendly neighborhood Boom Operator has come down with a sweet case of Strep Throat! Rock!

Hopefully I'll be able to kick this crap before Monday. Though, at the moment, my throat is almost swollen shut.


Wish me luck.
