POX : Quit Your Screamin’ and Start Streamin’!

Listen up! ‘Cause in case you haven’t heard . . . The movie POX

Written and directed by the wildly talented, wicked creative, and impressively prolific Lisa Stockton-Wilson — perhaps better known to the masses as singer / song-writer / musician / thespian / all-around Uh-Huh, Don’t-You-Wish-You-Were-Her phenomenonicon Miss Lisa Hammer

can be obtained for the “I Mean ; I Can’t Even” section of your DVD collection.

However, for those of you more on the instant gratification tip? The film is also available for streaming, by way of the almighty TLA Video.

This already-cult classic [ as in, like: Seriously, Mary . . . Where Have You Been? ] stars the inimitable Alizarinkryz as none other than POX himself.

In addition to our fearless cult leader, a slew of other luminaries appear in this cinematic delight — including :

Who? The dude from Gregg Araki‘s ever-incandescent, Thrill Kill Kult samplin’, endless-source-of-one-liners The Doom Generation? As in : That movie with Rose McGowan so white hot in her role as Amy Blue that you either wanted to be her or be with her or what-the-fuck-ever / I-can’t-even-relate-to-you, and Parker Posey‘s best cameo appearance probably, oh, ever, and of course Margaret Cho also shows because we’ve known she’s way fucking cool since long before your newbie ass was schooled how obnoxious it is for one to refer to himself by the majestic plural “we”? And uh-huh, dark-sider with so much erudite goth damage I bet even your toilet paper and tissue is pitch-hued : even and especially I’m looking at you when I reference how cEvin Key from Skinny Puppy fractured his knee during filming?

Yes. Yes, that James Duval.

And nope, the omission of Frank the Rabbit and Donnie Darko from my truncated ramble was neither oversight nor indication aforementioned title is not also chamber-tombed to my heart [for it is! It is : and how] but rather a reminder that fucking OATH, my beloved Bloggination! There’s a topic of much greater import to which I’m attempting to tend!

So, um. That being said? The film also features . . .

Kimberly Dzwonkowski, a.k.a. Kim Helms, whose performance is so effing g-damn genius; it’s full-on intracranial hemorrhage territory.

Levi Wilson, as the suicide punch meister of your masturbatory fantasies,

Sue Fletcher, as the neurotic loyal devoteé who deems herself “Mrs. POX.” [ And rightly so! ]

Do not, however, mistake her — or rather : her character, totes and obvs — for a groupie. If the subtitled still frame hovering above this cluster of text doesn’t clarify the distinction, then honey : I don’t know what to tell you . . . [ A simple suggestion, perhaps? Two words : Life Alert. Pleazh is all mine, Bee Tee Doubs ]

Incidentally, well aware I’m giving Generous in the screen cap department, though rest assured that it’s been anything but mad cazh or madly random. Au contraire, the act is one of scrupulous selection — of painstaking deliberation — by which I attempt to illustrate the gravitas of the sitch, bitch. Said another way? This film tackles some serious territory. That’s “serious” with implied italics. You feelin’ me?

And the atmosphere? Oh, how it delivers. Yes!

Seriously: Let’s Talk About Amanda Bynes

Tragic foreshadowing . . .

Amanda Bynes, mugshot, animated gif, glitch

But I’m not here to make judgment calls. Correction : judgment calls regarding her extra-curricular activities, or — you know. Life in general. Instead, the query that’s a hot tip for me, Mary . . . A cursory glance at her courtroom attire, and I have to ask : Does she not have any queer friends? Or even white-washed WeHo GHEYS, for that matter?

‘Cause if so, whatever shady phag let her out of the house wearing that $30 Hollywood Blvd synthetic wig needs to be bound and gagged in Abercrombie & Fitch for the next decade! [The ultimate punishment : release the little shit once he’s past his tweenage prime.]

Oh, but wait. I assume you guys know about The T that went down in Twitter-town?

Miss Bynes had a less-than cordial response. I’ll spare the vitriol and leave it As It Is.

Mmm-hrmm. I know, baby girl. I know. Oh, but just a little technical ish? Well aware you were “in character” and all that : but this don’t look nothin’ like no grin . . .

Diggin’ that low-rez, slightly glitched-out look, howevs. Very au courant, in fact!

Tatt-ered “Cø††øn” and Cottonmouth Kisses

I†† [ eye doublecross ] is not just a band;
they’re “a low-fi hypersigil, casting spells in various mediums .”

[CUE EXAGGERATED SHRUG]

Cool by me, brah.

Though when I discovered the basis for “Cø††øN”—
the latest single the duo conjured & released into the world
was [quote] “influenced by [ my book ] Cottonmouth Kisses” ?

Well, the excitement level racheted a bit Richter,
not gonna lie. . .

Then, upon hearing the track?

That’s when the really good news occurred.

I like it.

As in : I mean —
I really, really like it.

No need to elaborate, nor to “re-visit”. . .
but we’ve all had at least one friend whose
band/stand-up comedy act/spoken word performance —
[ thought I’d keep the playing field fair ]

Amidst the deafening silence & painful anecdotes that aren’t being shared at this moment,

Tumblr Reciprocation : Life Beyond The “68-&-Owe-One” Mentality

Oh, sweetness. Is it too much to fathom, the thought of dipping into the population?
This business with the little people—you know, your “followers”. . .
Can you simply Not. Be. Bothered?

Morrissey

Excluding the rare exception [ namely, bashin’ my dash with—well, content I don’t want to encourage;
hence, the deliberate omission]
, I don’t understand why a person wouldn’t “follow back.” Granted,
I’m still a novice in the grand scheme of tumblrification, but I don’t know of a means by which
one can tell how many “followers” a person has. . .nor do I care to, quite frankly.

I mean, MySpace has gone down the shitter—it doesn’t even have a name anymore;
that’s how far removed it is from social relevance.

Didn’t the myopic Don’t-You-Know-How-Many-“Friends”-I-Have mindset accompany it?

tumblr

[ Seriously? But SERIOUSLY ]

Lindsay Lohan

It’s rudimentary, my take on this sitch:
the primary function of tumblr’s dashboard [ or “feed” ] is that of an open dialogue, a continuous conversation
in which anyone from the 200 countries scattered around this curious planet we inhabit
has a unique opportunity [ so long as there’s internet access, though that’s a given—
I might as well be telling you it gets dark at night. . . ]

Because tumblr’s predominant means of communication is by way of a visual vocabulary, the opportunity
of which I speak is the ability for an individual to participate in the site’s ostensibly endless discussion
without the usual complications 6,800 different languages present.

possession, GIF

Sure, music is a ‘universal language'; we’re familiar with the adage, most of us.

In the case of tumblr, however,
the ability to upload videos & mp3s further validates my premise/rationale, rather than dilutes it.

[ She’s So Happening, via ThreeFrames.net ]

So : short of the long? Yeah, I follow back.
I also acknowledge that the sum of one’s “followers” does not deify.

[ Icarus much? I’d mutter Give Me A Break, but we have our day in the sun : each & every. . . ]

Oh, & when I attend a potluck dinner?

I don’t only eat the dish I brought.

GIF It To Me! [ Princess Hijab and Other Animated Awesomesaucery ]

As A Kid, I Often Said I Wished I Could Speak In Hieroglyphics

symbols, gif, animated gif

“How rad it would be,” I thought
[ though — since the timeline I’m referencing is circa rural Arkansas —
quite likely not verbatim, my choice of vernacular ]

“If I could speak in pictures. Fancy symbols, and all that shit . . .”
Meaning : not carved in stone, but rather contained
in word bubbles,
like in a comic strip

eye of horus

Y E A H .

A funny thing, time : cycles : that symbol of the serpent swallowing its tail . . .All these years later, and where do I find myself? Obsessed with animated .gifs / yearning to communicate by means of a visual vocabulary. But I mean . . . let’s face it : Does this gem excavated-from-the-uncredited-swag-on-imgur from Tod Browning‘s silent film The Show [ image source / with kind regards to Mogsville ] not speak volumes?

Or how about the next, in terms of a comment response?

An Incendiary Matter [The Creative Spirit Is Contagious]

Δ

Greetings, Beloved Darklings, Queerios, Style Fiends
& Ne’er-Do-Wells…

As the sun begins its descent here in this Babylon-on-the-Pacific commonly referred to as Los Angeles, I propose a Theme for The Evening, most beloved blogerati. [ to do with as you will — or conversely, as you won’t ; who’s to say? ]

fire, gif, animated GIF, three frames

Inspired by this GIF-tastic little gem I’ve reblogged, courtesy of the kind folks at Three Frames [ attribution hereby duly noted : please.uh-huh,and.thanks ]

The motif proposed is that of

ᐞ△ᐞ · f i r e  · ᐞ△ᐞ

Represented by a particular symbol with ancient ties to the practice of alchemy, Fire is elemental.

“The energy of life manifests in two forms : fire and air. While both are predominately active in nature, fire is the more active of the two, with air being slightly passive because of the partial water element in its makeup. Potential Matter manifests its energy as water and earth.”

“The alchemical sulphur, or soul, of a thing predominates in the animating principles of energy (fire) and intelligence (air). Alchemical salt, or the physical body of a thing, predominates in unconscious forces, psychic, and instinctual intelligence (water) and solid matter (earth). Alchemical mercury, or general life force, predominates in intelligence (air) and instinctual forces, and psychic energy (water), as such it is the link, or bridge, between the higher forces of sulphur and the lower body of matter.”

[ sourcery ]

Nevertheless, my intent behind this post is not to point you in a single direction, but rather propose a topic to set one’s rhetorical embers ablaze, so to speak…

fire dancer, animated .gif

SΔID ·  ΔNOTHER  ·  WΔY :

What role does fire play in your life?

Is it astrological?
[ Aries, 8th of April, in my case ]

Psychological?
[ Something you fear / something that incites desire, or is erotically-charged? ]

Or, better still:
Upon seeing or hearing the word,
Are there connotations that have little or nothing to do with what I’ve mentioned?

[ “Firestarter (3)” by Elizaveta Porodina ]

Whatever medium[s] of communication you might choose : words of your own, or that of another; photography [ ditto, self-created or reference points of inspiration ]; technology [ case in point: the animated .GIF embed herein ]; paint pencil canvas paper spray paint graffiti billboards buildings a keyboard the cello lit candles incantations magic mayhem…

Whew! Let me try that again . . . By whichever / whatever means you might choose, I look forward to seeing not just how you respond to me, but rather, something infinitely greater: the universal dialogue of creative expression, and the means by which it connects us, asserts our relevance at a specific moment in time.

Within / among / along the infinite umbilical cord that connects humanity ; the splendor of nature ; the universe.

Are You A Victim Of The Modern Witch-hunt?

[a quick check-list]:

How have relations with your peers been as of late?
Have any of your friends seemed distant, unavailable?  Perhaps a bit stand off-ish?
Or even worse: has anyone begun to treat you with suspicion?  Spoken to you with a distrusting tone?
Conducted a rash & volatile act upon your arrival—say, for example, the frenetic strumming of an
acoustic guitar to the tune of a [quote] “power ballad”?  &—if dare say that be the case—was
aforementioned ::SHUDDER:: stadium serenade coupled with an egregiously off-key
rendition of  lyrics such as “Don’t Stop Believin'”?
(Stop.  Believing.  What?!)

Quite frankly, do you feel as if your interests incite an impending sense of moral panic?

Are you persecuted…                                                                             for your taste in music?
