From your favorite Victorian era magazine – Tit-Bits – the ladies provide insight regarding their unmarried status:
”Because I do not care to enlarge my menagerie of pets, and I find the animal man less docile than a dog, less affectionate than a cat, and less amusing than a monkey.”
”Because men, like three-cornered tarts, are deceitful. They are very pleasing to the eye, but on closer acquaintanceship prove hollow, and stale, consisting chiefly of puff, with a minimum of sweetness and an unconquerable propensity to disagree with one.”
This looks fun! Careful, this is the red band trailer.
READY OR NOT follows a young bride (Samara Weaving) as she joins her new husband’s (Mark O’Brien) rich, eccentric family (Adam Brody, Henry Czerny, Andie MacDowell) in a time-honored tradition that turns into a lethal game with everyone fighting for their survival.
I was amused and happy to see one of our brothers begin to embrace his inner melodramatic twit by posting a couple of great tunes by the Smiths. Here’s a video of my favorite Smiths’ song, but with lead vocals by Neil Finn instead of Moz. Johnny Marr is in fine mettle. Enjoy. (P.S.- this also begs the question: is there any band that Neil Finn can’t step into and make his own?)
Thanks to Renfield for the heads-up on this documentary. I would love to see it in the theater but it’s not looking likely.
After the breakup of the Sex Pistols, John Lydon / Johnny Rotten, formed Public Image Ltd (PiL)– his groundbreaking band which has lived on nearly 15 times as long as his first one. He kept the band alive ever since, through personnel and stylistic changes, fighting to constantly reinvent new ways of approaching music, while adhering to radical ideals of artistic integrity. John Lydon has not only redefined music, but also the true meaning of originality.
Former and current bandmates, as well as fellow icons like Flea, Ad-Rock and Thurston Moore, add testimony to electrifying archival footage (including stills and audio from the infamous Ritz Show). With his trademark acerbic wit and unpredictable candor, Lydon offers a behind-the-scenes look at one of music’s most influential and controversial careers.
