NOT EVEN MY BEST FRIENDS KNOW…

…from my pal, Karyn. She is quite vexed in the city.

Name 4 movies you own that you think none of your friends own:
1. LISZTOMANIA (on DVD. Ken Russell went nuts and we are treated to a cartoon tour of the life of Franz Liszt as played by Roger Daltrey who gets to perform excorcism on Wagner and who has a penis that grows to over 6 feet length which leads into one of the oddest musical numbers I’ve ever seen. With the music of Liszt & Wagner “re-invented” by Rick Wakeman. Must be seen to be believed!)
2. THE DRIVER’S SEAT (in which Liz Taylor went nuts and plays a rich neurotic who is determined to find just the right man to strangle and stab her to death. …and, upon her request, rape her corpse. Oh, and Andy Warhol is there too. Classic trash cinema!!!)
3. BOYS IN THE BAND (From the director of THE EXORCIST & CRUISING, the film version on DVD)
4. LA CEREMONIE (in which Isabelle Huppert convinces a fellow maid to murder rich family in cold blood just for fun. Chabrol at his sickest. The look of glee in Huppert’s face as she blasts Jackie Bisset to hell with a shotgun is pretty damn scary!)

Name 4 books you own that you think none of your friends own:
1. A Crackup At The Race Riots by Harmony Korine
2. Clown Paintings by Diane Keaton
3. 8 Femmes by Ozon (hard cover red velvet — it’s in French, but has really pretty picutres of Huppert, Deneuve and Ardant)
4. May I Kiss You On The Lips, Miss Sandra? by Sandra Bernhard (you probably haven’t read it, but you should)

Name 4 cds you own that you think none of your friends own:
1. Death By Chocolate — self titled CD. …they rocked
2. Black Rose (Cher’s attempt at her version of ‘new wave/punk’ in which she did not use her name)
3. The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of “Mahogany” (my fave track is ‘She’s The Ideal Girl’)
4. Marlena Shaw Live in Tokyo

Name 4 places you’ve been where you think none of your friends have been:
…some things are best left confidential.
…a whole new meaning to “cock rock”

    matty you have some very weird books and cd’s. love the cock though…

  2. matt replied:

    Jungle Jane — yeah, I’ve odd taste in art. I love cock, too. Uh, I mean — cock rock. Yes, I love cock rock, too!

  3. SuperAmanda replied:

    I’ve never made it past the first ten minutes of Lisztomania. I have failed in life because of this.
    Films with Ringo from the 70’s are the great gems of art.
    Rick Wakeman eat your heart out.

  4. matt replied:

    Oh Amanda, I am sure you’ve not failed in life!!! But, it might be a good idea to fast forward that tape thru the first 10 minutes till you get to the scene where Franz heads off to Russia to meet Princess Carolyn — this is when everything just sort of goes “sin-a-matic krazy!” …and it was inspired to cast Ringo as The Pope. Yes, kiss the ring!

    holy-moley, jeepers-creepers, now that’s acting to keep from the kinfolk.

  6. g8s replied:

    I thought I was the only person who had the eponymous ‘Death By Chocolate’ album! Maybe you are perfect after all…

  7. joe replied:

    I don’t have any of those things, so does that make me one of your best friends who don’t know?

  8. Miss Marisol replied:

    New Wave/Punk Rock Cher? That’s something I never thought I would type.

    Gina – Interesting bit of trivia regarding Ken Russell’s LISZTOMANIA — to this day (and that film came out in late 1975) Roger Daltrey refuses to discuss anything related to that film or his work in it. Yet, he is still pals with Ken Russell. Odd. Apprently, someone stole the surprisingly realistic looking giant penis off the set. It showed up in the mid 80’s here in SF! …but went missing again in the early 90s. Where o where has roger’s giant penis gone????

    Gator — Wow! Color me impressed! You are only the second person I know who seems to know anything about Death By Chocolate. Tim (of Non Stop Tokyo) has some of their stuff via mp3. However, it is you who are closer to perfect because you are a poet! You can string words like pretty pearls.

    Joe — Yes! As I suspected, you rock! …tho, you do look a lot like a sanrio character in that picture — and that PC must be HUGE!!!!

    Miss Marisol!!!! I’ve been missing and thinking of you! Well, trust me — this was Cher’s “idea” of new wave/punk — I am not sure what one would call it. I guess we will call it Black Rose and leave it at that. Huge flop and many people thought the lead vocals were done by a man. …but it was Cher. On the back of the LP it was her in a Barbra like perm with her then boyfriend who wrote all the music lying in a pool of blood at her spike heel’d feet. Posing. Attempting. Wanting. To justify her coolness. Cher. Gotta love her!!!

  10. Tim replied:

    Matt, you must have the most eclectic taste of anyone anwhere in the whole world. Yeah, I’ve got those 2 MP3s of Death By Chocolate, and that’s all I’ve got from your list. I really wanted to have at least one thing so that I could look cool and impress everyone 😦
