Porn puts me to sleep

Destricted
Keith recently queried in a comment as to which films at this year's Seattle International Film Festival I am stoked on seeing. Good question, Keith.

First let me praise SIFF. SIFF, you rule. You're the world's largest film festival. You curate an impressive program and frequently have broken some great artists and honored oft-overlooked films. You offer wonderful seminars ranging from financing to animation.


Ok. So you get the point? I love that my city offers a *month long* film festival.
So, that being said, nothing on the schedule this year jumps out at me.
The New Director's spread is pretty tame.
Of the archival films, only The Window and Black Orpheus interest me--both of which I have seen many, many times.
This past weekend, Bill, Derek, Cam & I hit Destricted. Matthew Barney's piece was pretty damn spot-on. Larry Clark's was pretty good, but all of it reeked of artifice. It was pretty hot, though, seeing engorged cocks spewing the goo in an audience of art film snobs. It was a midnight showing and I fell asleep during the last short. Whoops, my bad! (Oh, and by the way, when did Larry Clark become an artist?)


Anyway, I'm hoping that someone has had the perspicacity to have paid closer attention to this year's offerings and drag me along--or that someone is so agog of some film that their fanaticism transfers to me (or they force me at gun point to join).


So, I know many of you have sent me the films you are going to see this year. None of them (not even that Portastatic bonanza) ring my bell, but that doesn't mean I'm not down for some cinema. So give me a ring when you're heading out and maybe I'll join you, m'kay?
Oh, and for all you out-of-towners and people addicted to podcasts (*cough* Adam *cough*), you can keep abreast of festival goings-on through the SIFF Podcast. You can check out trailers for most of the films and more than a handful of shorts are offered.
So, onto other things.


Namely, OKDJ Vol. 5
Aww, yeah, y'all, shit be bumpin'.
So here's the breakdown:
1. Hustler - Simian Mobile Disco
2. Disco People - Mike Theodore Orchestra
3. Under the Carpet - Mike Shannon
4. Sunstroke - Trentemoller
5. Swimming Places (Pete Heller Mix) - Julian Jabre
6. (This is) The Dream of Evan and Chan (Superpitcher mix) - Dntel
7. Marabout - Bob Sinclair
8. Nurse Hurse (Invasion of the Body Jackers Remix) - Detroit Grand Pubahs
9. Yeah Yeah (Turbo House Mix) - Full Intention presents Bodyrox
10. Knartz IV (Abe Duque Mix) - EgoExpress
11. Music is Music - Betty Botox
12. Sometimes (Junior Sanchez Remix) - Les Rhythmes Digitales
13. Get Ready for Your Last Dance (Silvercity-Bob Remix) - Waldorf
14. My Friend Dario - Vitalic
15. Damage (Buick Project Mix) - Tiefschwarz feat. Tracey Thorn
Right now my goal in life is to purchase a nice new computer so I can actually run programs like Photoshop CS2, Acid, and Premiere. As it stands, I made this mix with Mixmeister Express (while at work, but don't tell anyone, m'kay?). Its not a great program, but its better than nothing.
I really like 1 into 2, 5 into 6 into 7. 10 into 11 blows. But you get the idea, right? The gist of it? I hope so. And just imagine how great my mixing will be once I get Acid.
So, now I'd like to point to some sites that were integral into making this mix--namely JOCKOHOMO who posts some great tracks (3 on this mix were on his site).
His site is great (love the design!!) and his taste is impeccable.
And, aww, look, he even gave me a shout out. Thanks, man!
The next site I'm directing you to is DiscoDelivery. This site is a godsend. The second track comes from it.
And, if you want to download a mix that does actually pay attention to the details, head over to FourFour for Rich's newest. I love it so much I can't even put it into words. Also, happy 1 year anniversary Rich!!!
Did I mention that I'm locked in the vault for 12.5 hours today. That's just fugged!
Take care, all!
Update:
So sometimes I get really geeked about the image collection down here in the vault. I'm about half way through my hellatious shift and a whole series of photos of Jean Marais just came across my desk. There's something amazingly sacred about cleaning images that people haven't seen for many, many years.
Oh, and since I'm on a tangential subject, what do you think about this:


as my first tattoo--on my shoulder, substitute a script, "Pas de Chance" for Jean Cocteau--I'm thinkin' for 30 and all.

Ok. That's it for now.
All comments appreciated.
