The Clash Revisited: Watch Julien Temple’s film on the punk ‘revolution’

Clash2

 

Julien Temple’s latest raking of the coals of the punk ‘revolution’ looks at The Clash – a band often regarded with disdain and suspicion by the courtiers of the Sex Pistols (and indeed by the Pistols themselves).

The film revolves around their performance on 1 January 1977 at the Roxy, a small run-down nightclub in Covent Garden which had been commandeered to serve as Punk HQ.

Clash2

Although only a few months old, the band already had a distinct image: paint-splattered jumble sale clothes and stage backdrops of tower blocks painted by bassist Paul Simonon. They also had a unique body of songs, reflecting life on the dole or in dead-end jobs. A selection of these had been recorded as demos in November 1976…

Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein advert before they Photoshopped his thumbs

 justin bieber

Justin Bieber has been showing us his Calvin Klein pull-ups,

BreatheHeavy.com looked. And looked again. The site says that that it’s Photshop trickery and Bieber’s has a pudenda more akin to a naked Barbie than a jock with a sock.

He is also taller, more muscular and, most intrestingly, has bigger thumbs.

It’s all about the thumbs.

But what about that stain? Is that wetting? Do the pull-ups leak?

Jah Wobble: when kids from pokey council flats all over London made music

jah

 

Jah Wobble  is talking to the Guardian. Wobble was John Wardle until a drunken Sid Vicious slurred it:

When my mate John Lydon told me he was joining a band called the Sex Pistols, he might as well have said he was becoming a 747 pilot, because working-class kids like us just didn’t do that. It wasn’t like music now, where well-off kids have three years and a flat in Notting Hill to make a go of it. If you asked for that where I was from, they’d have had you sectioned, but suddenly there were kids from pokey council flats all over London coming together with energy, intelligence and humour. Punk was closer to the Marx Brothers than the situationists, but a window opened. I was already thinking about music, so it was fantastic timing….

I borrowed Sid Vicious’s Fender. He’d say, “You’re shit” and I’d go, “You can’t fucking play. Give it to me …” But the first of my own was a Musicman copy. I was living in a squat and had burned the furniture to keep warm. The others were furious and rightly so – so after a big fight, they just left me there with this bass and no amplifier, propping it against the headboard to get a sound. The first bass line I wrote [heard on the song Public Image] went top 10. Commercially, it’s been a steady decline ever since (chuckles)…

I made a radio documentary called In Search of Sid Vicious about that. [Author] Jon Savage very generously gave me access to his recordings of Sid’s mum – a heroin addict – going, “I fucking told him, ‘I don’t care where you go. Sling yer hook. Fuck off. Sleep on a park bench for all I care.” This when Sid was 15 years of age. So a very damaged boy. When Sid told a shrink that he wanted to kill himself, the shrink told him to bring a friend along to get him interested in life, and that was me. I said, “To be honest, I don’t know if he has got anything worth living for. Suicide is a viable option.” The shrink was horrified – we ran out of there pissing ourselves laughing. But, of course, many a true word said in jest. He was thinking of topping himself.

Frenzy: the ‘disgusting’ story of a London serial killer dubbed the ‘Necktie Strangler’

Frenzy1

 

Hitchcock’s 1972 Frenzy Is One Of The Least Festive Films Ever Made…

The BBC2’s decision to screen Alfred Hichcock’s Frenzy at 12.05am on the second of January, five minutes after the end of the holiday season is brutally appropriate, as it is without doubt one of the least festive films ever made.

 

 

Frenzy tells the story of a London serial killer dubbed the ‘Necktie Strangler’, and from the start there are references to Jack the Ripper and John Christie. The part was intended for Michael Caine, who thought it was disgusting and turned it down.

Adele splits from Simon: let’s all hate the singer who ‘snubbed’ chugging Bob Geldof

PA-16814794

 

The Sun’s “exclusive” that Adele and Simon Konecki are no longer an item has been picked up by the other tabloids.

The Sun says:

News of their separate lives comes as Adele, 26, prepares to release the follow-up album to her global smashes 19 and 21 which laid bare her heartache at failed relationships.

A few hours later the Mirror says:

Her new album was due out before Christmas but is apparently still not finished and there is no release date.

Free Speech: Dappers Laughs cannot be killed by the student censors

When Dapper Laughs was booted off the telly for making a rape joke at a club for his paying fans, we thought it a shame. Whan Daniel O’Reilly, for it is he, went on telly to say how sorry he was that he’d caused offence, we thought it tragic. Wear your ‘Too Bad for Telly’ as a badge of honour we urged.

As is the trend, students who would once have cheered for freedom and saying the unsayable now demand things be unsaid:

Earlier in the year, a show in Cardiff was cancelled following a petition by around 700 students who didn’t want him to perform at the university. Twenty-year-old student Zara Lindsay was behind one of them. She told Newsbeat she didn’t want Dapper Laughs performing on the University of Leicester campus.

She said: “Lad culture is quite prevalent these days. It’s especially bad on nights out with theme nights, drinking games and sports initiations. Plus there’s a general feeling that sexual assault is something that you should just take on a night out. Having people like Dapper Laughs holding gigs here suggests that this is an OK attitude and that sends out the wrong message.”

Music fan tongues radio DJ’s bumhole to win concert tickets live on air

Chile

 

To Chile, where DJ Paul Hip (“I’m crackers, me”) is giving away tickets to the EDM Mysteryland Festival. the contest is simple: what would you do to get the tickets?

The winner is the woman who offers to stick her tongue inside DJ Hipe’s bumhole. And then arries at the studio to perform her purchase live on air.

Prisa Group, the Spanish radio conglomerate that owns the station, is unimpressed, issusing the apology:

“Les dejamos una declaración del equipo de 40 Principales Chile.”

All terrible. but not all that new:

The most notorious of all Zeppelin legends began when the band played the Seattle Pop Festival on July 27th, 1969, then retired to the Edgewater Inn. The building sits atop Seattle’s Puget Sound; guests can actually fish directly from their windows. The 1985 Led Zeppelin biography Hammer of the Gods – which got much of its information from Zep road manager Richard Cole – describes a graphic scene in one of the rooms. “A pretty young groupie with red hair was disrobed and tied to the bed,” wrote author Stephen Davis. “Led Zeppelin then proceeded to stuff pieces of shark into her vagina and rectum.”

The Interview: the best reactions to Sony’s cyber war with North Korea

the interview

 

Obama and the FBI blame the hacking attacks against Sony Pictures on North Korea. Who knew the DPRK regime was capable? The hacks were triggered by the The Interview, in which two American journalists played by James Franco and Seth Rogen set out to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Amid threats of movie theater terrorism, Sony pulled the film from its Christmas Day release.

Reactions have been many:

The Conspiracy of Censors – Roger L. Simon:

The whole Sony story has a certain twisted dark comedy flavor with CEO Michael Lynton bickering with Obama over the release of what is said to be an unwatchable movie. It sure looks that way from the trailers.  If the NORKS had any brains, they should just have let the film be released and it would have sunk like a stone.  But perhaps they had other intentions — or someone did — beyond making fun of inane Hollywood studio executives or even silencing a movie.

The cyber attack on the studio has a serious side and it’s not really about North Korea.  It’s about who helped North Korea, the assumption being that the NORKS don’t quite have the technical expertise to pull this off by themselves.  Russia, China and Iran are the three candidates whose names have been thrown into the hopper as possible co-perps — maybe more than one of them.

Al Sharpton runs Hollywood:

Hollywood ​came to the Rev. Al Thursday as embattled Sony exec Amy Pascal ​met ​privately with the ​black leader for 90 minutes ​in a bid to fix the fallout from the ​cyberhacking ​leak of embarrassing, racially charged emails.

Pascal agreed to let Sharpton have a say in how Sony makes motion pictures, in an effort to combat what he called “inflexible and immovable racial exclusion in Hollywood.”

“We have agreed to having a working group deal with the racial bias and lack of diversity in Hollywood,” said Sharpton.

Obama on hack: “Sony made a mistake” in killing ‘The Interview’ – Xenio Jardin:

One important point in the President’s remarks today: a potentially ominous nod to the need for more regulation and control over the internet. The internet now is like “the Wild West,” he said, “We need more rules about how the internet should operate.” Cybersecurity is an urgent issue, and the Sony hacks underscore that, said the president. But when heads of state talk about more state control over the internet, rarely does greater freedom of speech result.

Axis of Evil 1 – USA 0:

 

Screen shot 2014-12-20 at 08.04.54

 

Appeasement – Jonah Golberg:

The only problem: At least one cable company preemptively surrendered to North Korean intimidation, too, reportedly saying it would not air the film. Now, even if Sony had a backbone transplant, it couldn’t release the movie.

Sony could still dump it on the Internet and let it spread virally. It would lose ticket sales, but the company would strike a defiant blow nonetheless.

Don’t hold your breath. Sony would rather go the way of appeasement. And so would everyone else, it seems.

Regime Change in Hollywood:

For Pascal, 56, and Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton, 54, the damage has gotten far worse as the flood of stolen material — including both of their email inboxes — keeps coming, and on Dec. 16, the hackers, dubbed Guardians of Peace, threatened a 9/11-style attack on theaters that show Seth Rogen’s North Korea assassination comedy The Interview. Pascal, the lead creative executive on Interview, tells THR she believes she has the backing of her Tokyo-based employers. But by now, high-level insiders have moved from speculating about whether she will be replaced to asking when and by whom.

Copping the Flacco – Slate:

The James Flacco Name Generator

At a press conference on Friday, President Obama said Sony made “a mistake” by canceling the release of The Interview. He also praised the film’s stars Seth Rogen and James … Flacco? If, like actor James Franco, you want a new last name—one you can share with an NFL quarterback—then use our name generator below.

China wins – Freddie de Boer:

What I wonder is why people aren’t a little more put off by a form of censorship that is more insidious, and will likely affect far more movies in the long run: the soft censorship of appealing to the Chinese government in order to reap the Chinese box office. There have been widespread claims that recent blockbuster movies like the latest Transformers have been written so as to appease Chinese censors. There’s nothing wrong with writing movies to reach out to a particularly huge foreign box office– why wouldn’t you want your movie to play to Chinese moviegoers?– but appealing to the Chinese government is a whole other ball of wax. That’s where you can see genuine self-censorship coming in. And while I imagine that this whole thing will blow over before long, without a great deal of long-term damage, I think the urge to play in China -and for the Chinese government — will only grow over time.

Andrew Sullivan:

The problem of willingly selling out to the Chinese reminded me of Ayn Rand, whose bracing moral lessons I’m sure Freddie had in the back of his mind. Rand’s finest novel,The Fountainhead, is an anti-capitalist screed about the spiritual and cultural evil of catering to market demand. Forget the problem of giving the commie censors what they want. It’s wrong to give the free market what it wants, when what it wants is aesthetically debased, which it always is. The architect hero of The Fountainhead, Howard Roark, is the ultimate in spine, the patron saint of never selling out. When one of his perfect, austere modernist buildings is bowdlerized the better to suit the public taste, he blows it up. That’s right, Howard Roark is a terrorist, a jihadi for artistic integrity. Maybe Howard Roark is the answer. Maybe can show us the way. Maybe Sony needs to feel that it is unsafe not to release The Interview. Maybe Seth Rogen needs to blow something up! Or maybe Brian Beutler is on to something, and the best we can do is call on Anonymous to steal the movie and make sure that, in this case at least, market-based American spinelessness can’t put a gag on our precious stoner auteurs.

Back Sony with cash – Jonathan Chait:

Sony is a for-profit entity, and not even an American one, that effectively has important influence over American culture. We don’t entrust for-profit entities with the common defense. And recognizing that the threat to a Sony picture is actually a threat to the freedom of American culture ought to lead us to a public rather than a private solution.

The federal government should take financial responsibility. Either Washington should guarantee Sony’s financial liability in the event of an attack, or it should directly reimburse the studio’s projected losses so it can release the movie online for free. The latter solution has the attractive benefit of ensuring a far wider audience for the film than it would otherwise have attracted.

Show me the alien cockroach – Peter Sudeman:

After Sony Pictures announced yesterday that it was pulling the release of The Interview, a film about two American journalists sent to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, from its scheduled Christmas Day release after threats of movie theater terrorism, several theaters across the U.S. said that they would show Team America: World Police instead.

The basic idea was to replace one movie mocking the North Korean regime with another. Team America, an all-puppet comedy from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, pits its heroes against a sad-sack version of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. At the end of the movie, he’s impaled on a giant spike, and it’s revealed that he’s actually an alien cockroach. Fitting!..

The Daily Beastreports that theaters in Cleveland and Atlanta that had planned to make the switch say that Paramount, the studio behind Team America, has ordered them to stop. The Alamo Drafthouse in Texas, which also planned to show the puppet comedy, announced on Twitter this afternoon that due to “circumstances beyond our control” its Team America screening has been cancelled…. blocking replacement screenings of Team America can really only be described as next-level cowardly bullshit.

 

 

 

Sony was just the latest – Janice Turner:

Not only has Paramount pulled Team America, a decade-old puppet comedy parodying Kim Jong Un’s father, but a Steve Carell movie based upon the graphic novel Pyongyang. This is no comic, but an account by Guy Delisle of his time as an animator in a North Korean studio, constantly monitored by minders yet getting glimpses of the regime in all its absurdity and horror. This is a film that needed to be made.

And when the Sony cave-in was announced, Carell tweeted a still from The Great Dictator. It is an apt comparison: Charlie Chaplin’s devastating and humane 1940 parody did not bring down Hitler but it gave succour to those who were trying. Such was its propaganda value that while it was in production and Britain was still pursuing appeasement, the government planned to ban it for fear of riling the Führer. It was inspired by Chaplin watching Leni Riefenstahl’s Triumph of the Will: while other anti-Nazis were awed and dismayed by its grandiosity, Chaplin fell about laughing…

…too often, the response to any threat has been cowardice and complicity. Hollywood just behaved like the entire British establishment which dropped Salman Rushdie after The Satanic Verses rather than turning on his illiberal persecutors. And even now Newsnight refuses to show an affectionate Jesus and Mo cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad, siding with Salafist extremists rather than moderate Muslims who argued the image was inoffensive.

What if one of America’s violent anti-choice groups threatens cinemas showing a film in which a woman has abortion? Will we capitulate every time the lawyers get nervous? Because Sony Pictures just put artistic freedom in turnaround. And this is no joke.

Free speech has been under attack for an age. North Korea was just picking up the vibe…

Mandy Rice-Davies: sex, society and wonderful photos

Mandy Rice-Davies: 21 October 1944 – 18 December 2014.

Mandy Rice-Davies was a central figure in the 1960s Profumo affair. Along with her flatmate Christine Keeler, the scandal brought Harold Macmillan’s government to the edge. It was the story that kickstarted the Swinging Sixties.

John Profumo was the War Minister. He’d been having an affair with Keeler who was also said to be having a relationship with Soviet defence attache Yevgeny Ivanov.

Rice-Davies testified at the high-profile trial of Stephen Ward, an osteopath who was charged with living off the immoral earnings of her and Keeler,. The pot boiled with tales of sex and secrets in the upper echelons of society. Ward was guilty. But he never served a prison sentence. He took an overdose the night before a guilty verdict, and died days later.

Rice-Davies was famous. And she’d became notorious for claiming to have had an affair with Lord Astor. He denied it. Stood in the witness box during the trial at the Old Bailey, she called the noble Lord a liar.

When told he had denied the affair, she replied: “Well he would, wouldn’t he?”

But the Sun told its readers that Belafonte was missing. Today the Sun reports:

We told yesterday how the couple’s nine-year marriage was in crisis. Distraught Mel had told friends “It’s over” after Stephen didn’t visit her during the three nights she spent in hospital last week.

Sex with Bill Cosby is ‘like necrophilia’ with a white woman

PA-21535154

 

Bill Cosby’s getting a kicking in the Sun. The headline declares:

Bill Cosby’s hooked on sex with sleeping women

Says who?

Says Dr Charlotte Laws, friend of alleged victim… The Sun can reveal the 77-year-old US sitcom star has now been hit by allegations that he is a somnophiliac — a pervert hooked on having sex with sleeping women. Top psychiatrists say the depravity is “like necrophilia”, the sexual attraction to CORPSES.

The dead never do tell.

…Yesterday political commentator Dr Charlotte Laws said her friend was subjected to that same vile treatment — despite being in a raunchy relationship with the screen star and quite happy to “do anything” with him while awake.

Dr Laws, a former California councillor, revealed her friend met Cosby in 1979 and they started dating behind the back of his long-suffering wife Camille.

Ray Bradbury: how to burn a book without fire

This Dec. 8, 1966 file photo shows science fiction writer Ray Bradbury looks at a picture that was part of a school project to illustrate characters in one of his dramas in Los Angeles. Bradbury, who wrote everything from science-fiction and mystery to humor, died Tuesday, June 5, 2012 in Southern California. He was 91.

This Dec. 8, 1966 file photo shows science fiction writer Ray Bradbury looks at a picture that was part of a school project to illustrate characters in one of his dramas in Los Angeles. Bradbury, who wrote everything from science-fiction and mystery to humor, died Tuesday, June 5, 2012 in Southern California. He was 91.

 

Thought of the day:

“About two years ago, a letter arrived from a solemn young lady telling me how much she enjoyed reading my experiment in space mythology, The Martian Chronicles. But, she added, wouldn’t it be a good idea, this late in time, to rewrite the book inserting more women’s characters and roles…. The point is obvious. There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches. Every minority, be it Baptist / Unitarian / Irish / Italian / Octogenarian / Zen Buddhist / Zionist / Seventh-day Adventist / Women’s Lib / Republican / Mattachine / Four Square Gospel, feels it has the will, the right, the duty to douse the kerosene, light the fuse… The real world is the playing ground for each and every group, to make or unmake laws. But the tip of the nose of my book or stories or poems is where their rights end and my territorial imperatives begin, run and rule.” — Ray Bradbury

Dancer Lionel Blair with his wife Susan and their new born son Daniel.
Ref #: PA.7291791. Date: 14/08/1968

 

Lionel Blair is not appearing in panto. He explains why:

Case one: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang:

 ‘There was this one little boy who used to come up to me every night to give me a hug and in the end I had to say to the matron, ‘I love him but will you please stop him doing that? It only takes one stagehand to say ‘Lionel Blair is touching the kids backstage’ and that’s your career over. So I had to stop it. It’s awful, so sad, because I adore children.”

Case 2: Oh, no he didn’t. Lionel asked a seven-year-old boy his name at a Stockport panto.

Boy: “If you touch my nuts, you’re dead.”

Traditional names are best…
