        i have a two-word oxymoron for 'ya:

                canadian cinema


        you know, canada could repeal nafta and ban all exports from
        america if it wanted to. but it doesnt want to. instead,
        it wants to enjoy the convenience of the american consumer
        lifestyle while reserving the right to bitch about it.

        and this is probably the most compelling evidence of
        canada's wholesale acceptance of americanism--the attitude
        which allows one to complain loudly while enthusiastically
        complying with the so-called evil.

        america--the city on the hill--where one can have shit
        cake, and eat it too.  get used to it or vote.

No. and I don't know why. It used to be on Friday nights from midnight to 1
am but now it's been replaced by a stupid metal/industrial show called Loud.

I saw that one the other day too. Too bad that with PiL they felt they had
to show "This Is Not A Love Song", the one everyone knows, instead of their
later appearance circa _Album_. Oh well.

I'm not a limey, though I did live among the limeys for many years. Their

Totally, this band are so dull retro headuptheirarse that even other
dull retro bands call them. They have no redeeming features.

Subject: Re: Kula Shaker


  Someone asked about Kula Shaker and the replies have so
far been negative. They are retro, this is true, but the
singles have gone down well and the album has had good
reviews all round, except for Melody Maker. They are one
of the pet bands of Chris Evans, the breakfast DJ on Radio
1 here in the UK, along with Cast and Ocean Colour Scene.

  Sony Music do have an official Kula web site, which is
at www.kulashaker.co.uk, I think.

  There is an unofficial website as well that has been running
for longer and is superior. It is run by Kosso at Anderson and
Lembke, a regular contributor to Angst on nme.com. He asked Sony
if they would pay him to upkeep the site and make it official
but they preferred to get a company in.

  Can't remember his website address, but if I get it I will
pass it on.

        i would describe it as a cross between "Clerks" and "Natural
        Born Killers".

        good: 4ad soundtrack, cinematography, the 3 actors who play the
              3 lead roles, visual effects.

        bad: the script. the attitude toward violence.  the script.


        i thought it certainly worth the 3 dollar rental, if for no
        other reason than being able to hear cocteaus, TMC, love
        and rockets, and mazzy star in the same movie. good fuck
        scenes, too.

yep.  look at the number of hipsters running around these days listening
to frank sinatra, karen carpenter, 70s disco, etc.

trend-hopping is a sport that some people enjoy.  they hang out with
people that share their interests, read the same magazines, wear the same
clothes.  some of them delight in mastering the minutia of the styles.

sure, it seems silly to those of us who enjoy the intrinsic value of a
thing rather than its relevence to an overall style, but should we really
be so quick to judge?

why do some people like punk rock?  why do some people like experimental
noise?  why do some people like brit-pop?

so many of these things boil down to personal *taste* and what someone
gets from something.  if something has value to someone, it's usually for
a reason and why should we be so quick to deny *that* value, to *that*
person, for *that* reason?

i'm sure there are plenty of people running around that click with alanis
because they feel like she's voicing the same kind of alienation and
frustration that they feel.  sure, to me it seems trite and cliched and i
could probably name hundreds of people that voice the same kinds of
feelings with much more subtlety and depth, but they're where they're at
for whatever reason, and if alanis is focusing them on some kind of truth
within themselves, then it can't be *all* bad (sure sucks when i have to
hear her on the radio, though!)

sophistication of taste is something that takes time and effort and
self-analysis and a lot of people just haven't done much of these
things.  the dismal state of culture in general (especially in the united
states) sure doesn't help point people in better directions.

some people are quicker than others in opening to the sublime.  consider
yourself one of the lucky ones that have made it this far already.  and
rather than slam people for their "lack of taste," you might want to try
>gently pointing them towards more sophisticated things that they're
becoming ready for.

the mediascape is an abyss because people don't care enough about what
they feed into their heads.  and it's only going to change through the
evolution of culture, one person at a time.

                across the room..yeah, that was cool.

                THE ACTORS... ALL OF THEM, Cinematography, Contiguity,
                plot, the idea of letting Greg Araki ever make another
                film as long as he lives, the thought of ever seeing
                Rose McGowan try to bitch and pout her way through another
                BORING sex scene again, move on the part of Skinny Puppy
                to play the skinheads, and on and on and on and on...
                oh, and the script.

                well, better probably than say the Flintstones or Tank
                Girl (both of which had cool soundtracks as well, but
                sucked shit through a bendy straw), but I don't know
                about WORTH IT....maybe if you had lots and lots of money
                and 3 dollars was to you what 3 cents would be to your
                Average Joe....

I think you need to stop complaining about the state of US music and be
grateful for what you've got. The US has all the best bands these days
and what do we have ?, we have britpop that's what. Did I say I was
English?, me? no way. Has anyone tried to get hold of any ESP tapes from
over here, It's not exactly easy (actually if anyone english has any
tips then I'd be grateful). Anyway, my point is that US music is
currently better than UK music I'd rather listen to Alanis than oasis
anyday and why the hell are we talking about Kula Shaker?, the sole good
thing which this band has done was to call Knebworth 'Knobworth' on MTV
but I guess the presenters could have done that.

(part II)
 supposed to be perceived.  Don't get me wrong--I thoroughly except and
encourage the tap on the back that we 90's males haven't entirely (not
that we should per se) debunked the entrenched stereotypes of man for the
legacy of actions attibutable to creating and maintaining those perceptions,
but come on how many "agonizing" and histrionic castration scenes do we have
to endure?  We're not always attributing our overall effectiveness as males
to the function or "effective" reach of our penii, are we?  Well maybe so
and this film is a brilliant little ditty on the nature of us 90's kids.
We are all consumer junkies and moral brigands HOORAY!

So yeah, this movie sucks.  Watch it and snort, gaffaw and retch.
I can't believe that hoolywood thinks that this is the kind of "independent"
release we have all been jones-ing for.

Cool soundtrack though.  When I saw the sneak screening of this in L.A.,
I stirred awake for the music.

Certainly would have to agree with Stick9's overall vilification of this
repugnant excuse of movie.

I've already harangued copiously about the nature of the impetus and
execution of this celluloid sludge.  I'll recap for this individual.

This movie, at first, appeared to be a charicature of (dare I utter the
monicker?)--GEN X nihilism.  Subversive and scathing of Kalifornia and
Natural Born Killers copycat flicks--not that either of these two examples
are the best of the genre, or so I thought initially, was what Doom Generation
was about.  However, not that I had examine any minutae, this movie quickly
reiterated through the same sort of textual mechanisms--the very trend
that I thought it was trying to subvert.  I mean, our parents generation, and
their parents, appear to perceive us as Niechtzian ubermen (and women) who
after recognizing the relativity of moral systems and the socio-economic
and geographic envirnoments that engendered them--we have said fuck it
and will now act on impulse (seeig that they fucked the world up pretty well
with all of their grand intentions).
        Sure, we may have more menage a trois experiences per capita (and
anal stimulation) then their generation--but COME ON! (pun intended)  What
I witnessed was gratuitous abuse of the audience, and a infantile regard
for story and substance.  The only scene that had any impact on me was the
warehouse scene (with the skinny puppies)--it just hammered home the idea
of how ignorant and phallicentric males are (even in this "enlightened age")

  Ha ! Ha ! I can assure you, however boring you might

  there is such a thing as "Canadian Cinema", but there is many
  of them : West, French, and Maritimes.
  I could go on on the precise "irony" that defines "our"

  I was talking about "the Whole World", not just Canada.
  In fact, I don't really give a damn about countries and
  frontiers : I'm forced to consider these facts, that's all.
  Besides, I never said "everything from USA is bad", Just
  everything "Corporate" made in the prescriptive process of
  an ideal to control or influence a whole world's market.

  What ?! What convenience is there for a citizen living in

  won't let you find anything else in the city. Drinking cola
  is a personal choice. Having to choose Coke or Pepsi is no =

  choice at all. "Convenience of American Consumer Lifestyle" ?
  Take Michael Jackson and make a Stalin sculpture, the lifestyle

  Condescencion. Really... My point was : this whole world
  (orient and occident) is becoming "Americanist", and this
   scares ME (not "Canada", but ME, myself and I), cos I
   don't trust some of the patterns. I wish US democracy
   to a certain extent to every country in the world,
   but not its "econocraty". They are books written by =

   Americans about this : they use the term "present-mindness"
   to define what we are to fear about the USA evergrowing
   influence on all "lifestyles". The oxymoron to
   describe the idea would be "american future". There is no
   evidence of a sense of "consequence". It's all "space"
   (Mc Donalds everywhere in the world) and not "time"
   (conscience of future generations looking at its past
    and its vestiges). Now..... Don't bitch on me.....
    This is all written by Americans. Beside : I love USA !!
    I travel there a lot and I love the people. =

    When I speak, I try not to involve my whole country in my
    sayings. So It is natural for me to respond to such
    conceptions when I feel it to be unpurposed.
    That was the reason of my "flame".
    I hope some people got that.
