!! OMG, the vision of Divinity: Jeffrey Schwarz interview !!


Jeffrey Schwarz has directed over 100 films; documentaries about movies, films on films, covering the making as such classics as ‘Footloose’ [this amounts to several films, obsessed much?!], ‘Bewitched’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
His in-depth documentary on the queen of all queens, Divine, premiered this year at SXSW and features previously unseen photos and videos provided by Divine’s mother Frances Milstead who was still alive when Jeffrey was collecting together his material for what he describes as “the ultimate ‘it gets better’ story”.
Schwarz sat down with Afterelton to discuss his dream of one day making a Divine Biopic, his search for film-funding sugar-daddies or “donor angels”, and remembering that John [Waters] and Divine, were creating “movies for gay people who didn’t get along with other gay people”:

“Today’s queers need to remember people like Divine and the people on the fringes who made it easier for the rest of us.”

True dat!
You can read the whole interview HERE [I promise only a single mention of canine excrement] and you can browse the North American film screening deets, after the jump.

!! OMG, SHAKE YOUR HABITUAL ASS: The Knife’s ‘STH’ interview !!

tk_miu8xiAJzX1r7rh3ao1_500.jpg
Beginning with a mesmeric swingy swing and the footage taken from their album teaser from last December, The Knife’s album ‘interview’ expands upon this very album teaser blurb and their later released album manifesto [also after the jump], questioning systems of fame and school institutions that they see as failed and championing those systems [the ecosystem, the soundsystem] which they still believe can instil change.
Scanning through relatively mundane images [people dancing, birds feeding, doorways and windows, railings and walls], Olof and Karin narrate a new process-heavy-shake-up of old habits:

“we approached each other…through the language of others…and we play…and we played and we played and we played…to let go of what we already knew about music and explore what we didn’t know…letting go…we want to question the knife”

“we used homemade instruments, or played traditional instruments in non-traditional ways and tried to find non-tradional ways of creating traditional sounds…making a bedspring sound like a voice, or a voice sound like a bedspring”

They discuss protest songs [against monarchy and the nuclear family] and the power of safety in collectivism. They use the “commercial homogenisation and extreme hierarchical conservatism” of the music industry as a metaphor for societal shifts in Europe, and set aside their previously worn masks which questioned ideas of “fake tanning” fame and identity, but then became commercial institutions in themselves:

“I think there are no real ‘us’, behind the masks there are other masks”

I’ve popped the video after the jump due to some non-nuclear titty sucking near the end so jump in and SHAKE YOUR HABITUAL ASS !

“it’s time to move…to fall…to fly”

!! OMG, missed message: MS MR’s ‘Hurricane’ !!


When ex-Playboy bunny Shelley Darlingson [Ana Faris] said “The eyes are the nipples of the face”, she was simply implying that you should make them pop, not that you should take it literally and wear a face bra or start tweaking your irises when a cute boy takes your cotton t-shirt weave off your head.
She certainly did not mean, therefore, that the nipples are the eyes of the torso, because that’s a whole other something else, and then means that the belly button is the mouth of the torso and the MUFF IS THE GOATEE, and that one big long stubborn gross grey hair that grows straight out of the right side of your stomach is some sort of mustachio.
So wearing a facial bathing costume is then not the same as making your eyes pop with a touch of mascara, not at all, and neither is a green-slop makeout session, or wearing a coordinated scaly Land Before Time neon bathing cap under your weave. I think you need to re-watch ‘The House Bunny’, I think you missed the message there!
Cute chorus though!

My friend Becca has the biggest ginger-fro you’ve seen, and people always touch that and once some guy in a car threw a plastic bottle at that fro and she was nononononononot happy about that thing.
Well Auntie Brooke can relate to this, DO NOT touch her hair, or her coat or anything for that matter, don’t even look at her or she’ll set her baby mouth lizards on you!

Read Brooke’s Candy-ass interview OVER AT BEATJUICE where she talks all abeat hanging out with art fags, stripping at ‘Cheetah’s Bikini Bar’ and “the gay uprising!”

“I’m gay, and I was dating a man. He was gay too…We hated having sex.”
