Me not impressing some older couples by claiming that all Christians and religious people in general are insane lunatics, note to self: atheist philosophies do not necessarily equal punchlines...
Whoop! first time with my name on a poster though...
Young Tom Toms
Tom Moran and Kate Bouchier think about their doirty little secrets
Had cheered up by this point...
Was it something I said? yes maybe as I said it through a microphone in a crowded room.
Cambridge Based comedy/poetry troupe 12 Guage in mid flow...
Kate with gun (not real...as far as I know) either way it's a got a sexy touch of that video Samuel Jackson is watching in Foxy Brown, don't it...

Turkish Star Trek
Turkish Star Wars
This post is probably inspired by Italian Spider-man, see above, but my friend Iain is doing a PhD on these sorts of films. (obviously not Italian Spider-Man, a modern joke on these sorts of films)
What I remember from his papers was that the likes of Turkey have a different concept of the word "copyright" so in this movie Turkish Star Wars (more info here) they just back project scenes from Star Wars and Battlestar Gallactica with blokes in helmets swaying in front of them. Interestingly,the script in this Turkish Star Wars is better than the original.
Another one is Turkish Star Trek, (more info here) where, as Iain explained the Turkish version of Norman Wisdom appears as 'the tourist' a bumbling lunatic that magically appears in these cultural contexts.
So because Monday is my only day off, and Tuesday (for three days a month) is my only morning off, I decided to spend a day watching shite movies, because, like, as a film studies student I don't do that enough.
so here's the full roster of bizarre shit on the Jimmnyhomuncutbe my livejournal site to the crazy shite that's right here....
Shrunken Heads (1994) (more info here)
Puppet Master (1989) (more info here)
and just to show that shite movies are time immorial, here's
Hollow Man II (2006) (more info here)
and to finish two of the most disturbing movies ever made...
Freaks (1932) (more info here)
I had to stay late and sneak a peak on Channel 4 to see this back in the day, and now, it's on the Interweb..for free! ...god bless the future....
Threads (1984) (more info here)
basically the only true postapocalyptic movie ever made, no, we won't be driving around in spiky cars and meeting Tina Turner...we'll be like this and all the smokes will have run out and even if you swap some smokes for some whiskey you'll puke because you've got radioactive poisoning...and it's gonna be hell....watch it...only if... if you have someone to hug and have a coffee and smoke with after, don't watch it on your own like I did you'll end up blubbing into a beer.

crunk...lookin' real fine

Anytime I go home, I normally pore over my old Neons and on my most recent trip to auld Rockcorry I brought some over to read on the plane like some sort of time traveller getting all excited about the prospect of Leaving Las Vegas being made by Alex Cox. Neon really created an atmosphere of injokes and extreme filmic geekiness that was enthusiastic but was never afraid to say when films were total shite, or good when others thought they were shite. They always referred to Arnold Schwarzenegger as 'Arnolt', and were taking mericiless piss out of the Cruiser before it was fashionable.
Anyway, one of my vague claims** to fame was getting a letter published in Neon in the Vincent Gallo issue cover below(click all pics to enlarge):
Note how my friend Jimmy Hanley has written "[scribble] You Hanley, Hanley, Jimmy" on my most prized copy of Neon. I was angry at the time, but he also pissed on my best friend's head, so I think I got off lightly, plus it kinda looks like a cool tattoo on yon Ricci's arm. This was akin to my wee sister once spilling diluted orange juice on my copy of V for Vendetta whilst I had to play Scrabble, but as you grow older you realize this quirks make your copy different to everyone elses and make them more valuable in emotional terms.
My Letter(it's the first one):
Graham Linehan, who has recently been classed as a bone fide living genius and looks like this:
Two columns that I'll never forget are this one about the Titanic
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen/ Leviathan style cut out drawing but that wasn't the case, must draw what I imagined the Desdemona to be. Even now, a mere mention of 'The Desdemona' will have my friends (well one in particular) in fits of laughter (well, I'll be laughing and he'd be there, yeah well I remember that)
The second great Linehan column was his Klaus Kinski adjusting to normal life one (which if you're read Kinksi Uncut, and you should, you'll understand)
Despite Linehan's involvement, they still get Ardal O'Hanlon's name wrong in this review of The Butcher Boy:
Here's some pictures of Mr. Kinksi to send you all peacefully to sleep...'I'm going to the cinema'...
*Hey the Internet, it's a good laugh isn't it? what will happened at the end? it's a great read isn't it? Great characters, twists and turns, I think what will happen at the end will be when we find out that we could have found aliens or gone to space with this technology but it was more important for us to watch a video of a chimp scratching his hole and sniffing his fingers and then falling out of a tree..
**Others include interviewing Mark Lamarr, Placebo, Gary Moore and Graham Fellows.
And this is the Tom Sizemore of the future we all have to deal with. To quote the above: "My life has completely turned around", says Sizemore proudly. "I'm a success story. I'm one of the winners--knock on wood".....
