Shameless Pop

I think the Association had the #1 song on Billboard or whatever during the week I was born, so there was never much hope for me.

No Matter How Hard You Try

You’re not going to make Crocs cool. I somehow got subscribed to a ridiculously overpriced MAN’S MAN clothing and apparel site (Huckberry – the name says it all) not too long ago. Their copywriters breathlessly oversell everything, but this one really made me chuckle.

Crocs are the shoes that can bring everyone together—from the creative directors we follow for style tips, to our parents, to our buddy who’s really into bowhunting. Over the past couple years, their unreasonably comfy slip-ons have floated into our everyday footwear rotations and aren’t leaving anytime soon. Which is why we’ve been looking forward to their new batch of near-weightless clogs outfitted for the colder months with all-terrain soles, cozy sherpa linings, and Realtree and Mossy Oak camo.

Werner Herzog seems to have taken a break from directing in order to design a new line of children’s clothing.

Don’t Forget Jodorowsky’s Dune

Can you imagine if this had actually gotten made? Documentary is available for rent on Amazon Prime.

In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever.

For two years, Jodo and his team of “spiritual warriors” worked night and day on the massive task of creating the fabulous world of DUNE: over 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes, and an outrageous, moving and powerful script.

In the words of Jodorowsky’s producer, Michel Seydoux, “It should have been enough. But it wasn’t.”

Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger (artist, ALIEN), Gary Kurtz (producer, STAR WARS) and Nicolas Winding Refn (director, DRIVE and ONLY GOD FORGIVES), and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavich’s film – featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodo’s mind- blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) – finally unearths the full saga of ‘The Greatest Movie Never Made’.

My Word, She’s From Germany

This song has been stuck in my head for the better part of a week, so I might as well share these great lyrics. What happens when you bring your German girlfriend home to meet your Jewish parents?

How I wished my folks were gracious hosts and not dismayed
But wit and wisdom take a backseat girl when you’re that afraid
Oh no, bring her home and the folks look ill
My word, they can’t forget, they never will
They can hear the storm troops on our lawn when I show her in
And the Fuhrer is alive and well in our paneled den
Oh no, bring her home and the folks look ill
My word, they can’t forget that war, what a war

My word, she’s from Germany
Well, it’s the same old country but the people have changed
My word… Germany
With its splendid castles and its fine cuisine

Well, the car I drive is parked outside, it’s German-made
They resent that less than the people who are German-made
Oh no, bring her home and the folks look ill
My word, they can’t forget that war, what a war, some war

My word… Germany
Well, it’s the same old country but the people have changed
My word… Germany
With its splendid castles and its fine cuisine, its lovely German women
And its wonderful rivers that do flow from her hills

My word, she’s from Germany
Well, it’s the same old country but the people have changed
My word, she’s from Germany
With its splendid castles and its fine cuisine
My word, she’s from Germany
Well, it’s the same old country but the people have changed
My word, she’s from Germany
With its splendid castles and its fine cuisine

My word, she’s from Germany
Well, it’s the same old country but the people have changed
My word, she’s from Germany
With its splendid castles, its fine cuisine
Its lovely German women and you and me!
