"For it turns out tha Eyes Wide Shu has almost nothing to say about its ostensible topic—marital fidelity—but it has a great deal to say about Tom Cruise. It might even be that the key t Eyes Wide Shu is not lurking in a coded image appearing only for a split second, but rather in the entire world-famous corpus of Tom Cruise’s acting work. But this would ruin our idea o Eyes Wide Shu as a claustrophobic world unto itself."
Cruise Control, Ben Parker for the Paris Review

"One of the more outlandish conspiracy theories holds that Stanley Kubrick was killed by the Illuminati for revealing too much about the secret society in his final fil Eyes Wide Shut. While the official cause of death was listed as cardiac arrest (certainly not shocking for a 70 year-old man), some conspiracists point to the preponderance of Illuminati symbolism in his films, his clean bill of health prior to dying, and the strange editorial takeover of the film before its release as evidence there was more going on here than meets the eye."
Was Stanley Kubrick Killed by the Illuminati? The Ghost Diaries



I need to see the film again. My boyfriend and I always maintained that it was about Cruise and Kidman, and that maybe Kubrick precipitated the end of their marriage.

She was one of the carnies, a young woman with long black hair that worked in one of the amusement park's booths. When the fireworks accidentally exploded inside the booth, she had been wearing a white dress. But it was somebody else who stepped outside of the booth that night, took her boyfriend's hand and walked towards the other rides. Nobody could tell the difference but me. I looked at her and knew it wasn't the same person.

Her booth stood abandoned, empty after the fireworks accident. When I went to investigate it I heard a soft whisper: "I'm here... I'm here." Invisible, trapped - she couldn't be seen by human eyes or leave the booth until the body snatcher returned.

I threw a blanket in the booth and it covered her form. She was crouching on the earth. But the only way to get her back inside her body was to recreate the fireworks accident with the body thief present.

Dum Dum Girls by Marc Lindsay-Scott
Dum Dum Girls, a photo by Marc Lindsay-Scott on Flickr.
On Thursday night I saw the Dum Dum Girls live at ULU. On Friday night I went to a fetish gathering in Camden.

It had been many years since I'd been to a gig in ULU. The space felt small, more enclosed. The crowd was a mixture of students, middle aged men who collect the NME, the gays and girls dressed like the Pipettes. If the Dum Dum Girls were a British band, their gig would have been somewhere in the EastEnd.



The first band - Novella - consisted of three girls on guitars and bass, plus a tattooed bespectacled boy playing the drums. They were a cross between early Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt and Slowdive. They were taciturn but great.

Oh Brian by Novella.



Glaswegian band Veronica Falls plundered earlier years than Novella: Sarah Records and the Primitives with more contemporary dashes of Camera Obscura. Two boys, two girls - again, a very good band with a tight, energetic sound that is better live than their recently released album. The Dum Dum Girls came out of their dressing room to watch their set and dance around a little. Later, during their own set, they dedicated one of their songs to them.

Bad Feeling by Veronica Falls

The Dum Dum Girls set was very professional and straight forward, but slightly cold. 50s pop rock and roll with Ramones haircuts. This review in the Ladies Toilet is spot on, though I would add that the reason why they didn't set the stage on fire was because they knew, at the back of their minds, that this was the bass player Bambi's last gig: they made the announcement towards the end and brought out champagne and flowers. It was visible that this was a sad thing for the rest of the band. Someone in the audience asked why Bambi was leaving and it sounds like she's going off to start a family.

The only time the crowd really came alive was when they played their cover of the Smith's "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out". All in all though, I really liked the gig; I stood to the side with [livejournal.com profile] wink_martindale, drinking Carlsbergs and nodding away at the songs - exactly what I wanted to do that night.

Yesterday, after completing my first shift at my new temp job, I met a friend in Camden and attended the Camden Crunch, a "vanilla" fetish night that happens once a month in a pub near the market.

Some people were in fetish gear but the majority looked "normal". I wondered whether they were looking at me and trying to guess what I was into. (I kept following my friend around and agreeing to all her suggestions - maybe they thought I was her new playing?) ;-)

We drank some whisky and chatted to people who were very friendly and jovial. The music was cheesy and the place started filling up fairly quickly. A few people introduced themselves to me out of the blue; if I didn't have my bag and wasn't wearing office clothes I might have been tempted to stay longer.

If you want a chilled out night with a good mixture of perverts people, where you might end up making friends, I recommend you check it out: Camden Crunch.

Cold MirrorsCold Mirrors by C.J. Lines

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first collection of short stories by British author C.J. Lines, bringing together pieces he has published in the past ten years in a variety of places, from magazines to anthologies. These stories vary between short vignettes to long horror tales, mixing the modern macabre with creepy Victoriana.

C.J. Lines is better known for his first novel, Filth Kiss, which was a sort of horror roller coaster ride set in a middle England town. The qualities in that novel that I loved so much - the attention to detail to what it's like to live in England today, from the banality of work and family relationships to the small-mindedness of provincial life - can be found in these collection of stories and are, in my opinion, its triumph. People who enjoy ghost stories from the Victorian age, and that style of writing, will also love some of the stories gathered here, in particular Debut. My favourite stories were The Trending, about the dead coming back to life with the help of Twitter, and Nostalgia Ain't What It Used To Be, for bringing together the weird with 80s New Wave music.

A collection to keep you company for the long winter nights ahead.

Friendsicles,

You are either getting this e-mail because I’ve promised I would tellyou this story and haven’t yet, you’re besties with someone I used to hook up with, or because my need for attention and adulation has reached such an all time high that I decided to pick 15 of you at random to listen to this story (most likely explanation), but all the same, below is the (in)famous but true story of how I met Quentin Tarantino… [redacted] and [redacted], I’ll be expecting your short film script of this in my inbox in the next couple of weeks…

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011:

Get a BBM at 8 in the morning from my friend [redacted] telling me we’re going to a party in “the Hills” that night because the Yankees were in town. But this party now presents a conundrum as a) I didn’t know people partied on Wednesdays because I’m uncool and b) I had just run out of clean underwear and hadn’t shaved my legs in three days, so I wasn’t really in a “party” sort of place. (what’s that you say? You’re surprised I’m single?) However, after being told to grow a pair, I decided to join the girls after work for this fiesta.

If you are a writer or enjoy creative writing, and you are on Twitter, I've discovered a great little way of sparking things off through HerLindsayness's blog. She writes:

Created by Monica-Marie, the idea (behind #wordmongering) is that at the top of every hour, participants write as much as they can for thirty minutes. Then they take a 30-minute break to stretch, snack, and generally refresh for the next round. You can participate in as few or as many rounds per day as you have time and energy for, and the encouragement shared between writers is invigorating. There is no contest and every word count, no matter how small, is congratulated.

I'm going to do my first one in 45 minutes. See you there?

Meanwhile on LJ, [livejournal.com profile] millionreasons has started a random postcard project which I also find interesting. I'm following her example and thinking of using Igor for my postcards.

Yesterday, an idiot carrying a cappuccino machine into the train dropped part of it on my elbow.  It's hurtin'.  I then got soaked wandering around London dropping off brochures for my arts festival in July.  At midnight, a brasilian friend arrived from Germany to stay with us for the weekend and we spent a few hours talking while I heated for him chicken and mushroom soup. I'm fighting annoying manflu so I can be well enough for drinks with him and his friends tonight.

38 minutes until my first #wordmongering...

The past couple of days have been wonderfully long and enjoyable. It started on Friday with a talk on time travel at the British Museum as part of their current exhibition on Science Fiction, Out of this World. Audrey Niffenegger, who wrote The Time Traveller's Wife, was part of the panel as well as sci-fi novelist Stephen Baxter, some guy who writes for Dr Who, some other guy who writes on the science of time travel and a woman who works in publishing (and who chaired the talk.) Audrey was a cross between Margaret Atwood and Tori Amos, all deep husky voice and very funny down-to-earth comments. The audience had a few nutters who shot theirs arms straight up when it was question time. I spotted a few friends of [livejournal.com profile] hester 's in the audience but I couldn't remember their names or LJ handles.

Yesterday, I went to the garden's Summer Fair then met friends in the evening at Rich Mix for the documentary Senna. It's a wonderful film which is hard for me to be objective about. Because I'm brasilian, I grew up watching Senna race every Sunday, my family and friends filing my home with cheer for his victories or despair for his losses. Seeing his life played out on the big screen brought back nostalgic memories for me as well as some good laughs at how naff Brasil was in the 80s. Well, wasn't the whole planet?

Senna was to Brasil what Lady Diana was to Britain in their deaths: this outpouring of emotion that showed the true extent they had affected people's lives while alive. He was different from her though in how there was nothing contrived about him: he was pure talent, hard work and charisma. There was something about his eyes that was very beautiful, his smile too - that gave away how idealistic he was about Formula 1 and making a mark in the lives of the less fortunate in Brasil (I suppose similar in that sense to Diana).

Everyone in Brasil knows where they were when they heard he died (i.e. most were in front of the telly) just like everyone in Britain still remembers hearing of Di's accident in Paris.



Today, I woke up early to meet [livejournal.com profile] kirsten at Columbia Road market for breakfast. It was rainy, cold, grey and horrible. We had a look around the shops and found a table in Restaurant Espagnol, which has lovely coffee and breakfasts (chorizo on top of fried eggs and toast; why did I never think of this?!)

We then drove to Camden so she could get a piercing at Cold Steel. On the drive back home we blasted 2 Many DJs and talked about Salt-and-Peppa and what the hell happened to them. Weirdly enough, a few hours later I watched a documentary by Chris Rock called Good Hair, which featured interviews with them. It's a bit of a surreal documentary that falls under that subgenre "we all live on a crazy planet". It looks at the multi-billion dollar industry surrounding hair in America in the black community, and its consequences to themselves and other parts of the planet. Funny at parts, weird in others. Made me wonder what will happen to all those people who spend thousands of dollars on their hair if the American economy continues to slide into the hole. It's completely unsustainable, like a lot of other things in America...



Tonight, we are watching Soprano episodes while eating our dinner, reading old newspapers in bed and listening to classical music. Global warming feels like a dream when the typical grim British summer returns to chill our apartment and cover the city with rain.

P.S. More Gingerganza this way! (thank you [livejournal.com profile] kirsten for the link.)

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If I were teaching a class on how to write a bestselling paperback, I'd recommend this novel to my students. These are the basics: each chapter must focus on a scene that is highly dramatic and that somehow causes a reversal on the story, creating further problems for the protagonist(s). Obstacles get progressively harder until the climax somewhere towards the end of the novel. Bits of sex here and there. Bits of cruelty towards the protagonists. Good looking villains; grotesque villains. Then an open-ended finale that will make your readers need to buy the next five or six installments of your series.

A Game of Thrones has a huge cast of characters based in a fantasy world somewhat resembling medieval Britain, an island divided by different cultures and loosely held together by a king. It's a little difficult at times to remember who is who: is Varys the eunuch, or is that Verys? And is Ser Loran the Knight of Flowers, or is that Ser Leran? It's a land very similar to a thousand fantasy novels written before or since, with a handy map on the first page and an adherence to certain rules of the genre. The one way it differs from other fantasy novels is its focus on intrigue and human relationships, and the near absence of magic and fantastical creatures.

The first 1/3 of the novel were disappointing. The language was a bit undercooked, clichéd. It wasn't clear whether Martin was aiming for anyone other than 14-year-old boys. The story then picked up speed and some of the more interesting characters, like the dwarf Tyrion, took centre stage. The Seven Kingdoms, with its incestuous rulers, pre-teen brides and buckets of gore suddenly became a darker, harder place to resist.

Ben Rivers Slow Action
Slow Action is a post-apocalyptic science fiction film that brings together a series of four 16mm works which exist somewhere between documentary, ethnographic study and fiction.

Continuing his exploration of curious and extraordinary environments, Slow Action applies the idea of island biogeography - the study of how species and eco-systems evolve differently when isolated and surrounded by unsuitable habitat - to a conception of the Earth in a few hundred years; the sea level rising to absurd heights, creating hyperbolic utopias that appear as possible future mini-societies.
You arrive outside a gallery near Mile End, between the park's sports' field and Regent's Canal.  It's not yet 12 noon so you sit on nearby picnic table and wait.  You talk to [livejournal.com profile] shuffle81 and [livejournal.com profile] wink_martindale about the gorgeous weather. Three friends sitting nearby chat along the same lines and sip coffee. A girl chains her bike and stands by the gallery's door until it opens. 

It's dark inside and you can barely distinguish the girl who hands everyone high-tech headphones.  She shows where to adjust volume before another door is opened into a screening room.  A woman with a foreign accent speaks softly into your ears while the images on the screen move through an alien desert-like landscape.  It takes you a moment to realise that people are sitting on black leather bags on the floor.  You slowly inch forward and find one for yourself.  For the next forty five minutes you visit the post-apocalyptic societies of Eleven, Hiva (The Society Islands), Kansennashima and Somerset.

To me, this is true science fiction: it's our world viewed through an old camera but at the same time made strange and remote by the stories, facts and figures given by the narrator.  It's here and it's nowhere, it's ideas over action, it's completely devoid of clichés.  It's perfectly formed and delivered, from the gallery's setting to what's on screen.  True science fiction makes you look outside the window and shudder, makes you step out of your comfort zone, even if for a little while, and question the structures and lives around you.  It makes you look leave the screening room and see the outside through new eyes. 

Slow Action
ends today.

What do you guys think of this recent UFO sighting in Jerusalem? My first thought was "Israeli army" but now that I've seen it a few times I'm thinking that it moves way too fast - unless it was attached to some kind of cable which pulled it up (and it was quite light). Very strange.

There's an exhibition currently at Viktor Wynd's Little Shop Of Horrors (11 Mare Street) of prints gathered (drawn?) by Zoe Beloff on Albert Grass, a guy who worked in Coney Island's amusement park in the 30s and filled notebooks with his dreams in the anachronistic style of Lynchian comics. His real dream was to one day convert Coney Island into a giant Freudian amusement park but Depression-era America and its people were not ready for a libido pavillion that featured a naked 50-foot pre-pubescent girl.

We dropped by the Little Shop of Horrors yesterday with our friends/landlords and enjoyed the exhibition very much - so much in fact that our hard-earned cash stayed behind in place of books and prints. Then we parted ways and went to see Metropolis's re-issue at the Barbican - with brand new footage found in Argentina last year which hasn't been seen by any audiences until now, together with the original score. A total thing of beauty. I got so excited in the cinema when the lights went down that I spilled beer all over my jeans.

Afterwards, we dropped by our landlords/friends because they had a lot of left over chicken and ham that they wanted to share. They made a roast dinner for us which we accompanied with three bottles of rosé and Tangier-scented conversations. Somebody mentioned that there was a guided walk happening in Islington that was on the playwright Joe Orton.

'Do you know Joe Orton?' M asked me.

Nope, never heard of him. Of his imprisonment after tampering with library books. Of his meeting with the Beatles to write a screenplay for them. Of his famous plays. Or of his openly gay relationship with his obessive and ultimately murderous boyfriend. Today, during my lunch break, I cruised an used bookshop by Tottenham Court Road and found Joe's diaries in hardback, originally published in the 80s. £3.50. I snapped it on the spot then read its introduction in a blissfully empty bus home. (Blissfully empty because today starts a Tube strike in London and my experience of these has always been crowds, pushing and shoving to get into buses.)

I was momentarily confused today when I arrived at my gym's changing room and heard The Cure being blasted through the ceiling's speakers. There's a certain je ne sais quoi to men showering and getting undressed while Robert Smith sings "Love Song". It heightened the funny mood I was already in.

The weights room was filled with things eager to be held. I know what hands are for and I like to help myself to the free weights. Whenever I'm in a bad mood, I put it down to the weather; but the truth is that I'm thoroughly addicted to endorphins and anything longer than a week away from the gym hits me like s.a.d. I don't hate going to the gym, but it gets boring sometimes. Really boring.

On the plus side, I don't look like someone who goes a lot to the gym.

I've been frustrated lately with my job hunt and stress at work (had an argument today with someone at Job Seekers which escalated to her line manager being called for a complaint) so it's nice to get that energy out afterwards. Today, though, it was Depeche Mode and Lloyd Cole that accompanied me instead of the usual dirge by Eminem and Kei$ha. I controlled myself during Alice Cooper's "Poison" and nearly broke into giggles (and dropped dumb-bells on my toes) when "Maniac" from the film Flashdance came on.

I always see the same faces, though some are missing thanks to Ramadan. I wish I had a gym buddy. I wish I had more time to complete this job application due tomorrow.

Mills and Boon are having a writing competition in September, "a global search for fresh writing talent to join Mills & Boon’s galaxy of romantic fiction stars."  It's free and all you have to do is upload the first chapter of your bonkbuster for their judgement after the 6th of September.  Go to Romance Is Not Dead for more info.

I had a look at some examples of recent Mills and Boon books and I never read a bigger pile of tosh in my life.  Every single person I know on LJ can do better!  So, your mission if you choose to, is to write the first chapter of a Mills and Boon novel and join the competition.  Oh, and create a pseudonym to go along with it.

[Poll #1605969]

Contestant entrants can judge each other's writing after September 6th on that website. I think we should all do it - let's call it a pre-NaNoWriMo warm up. I'm already getting plenty of ideas from watching Dynasty.

P.s. Why isn't there a Mills and Boon line for gay men?!

Inception Review [TRS - Ep. 174]

The showing of Inception yesterday was packed, as I'd been warned beforehand by co-workers. Luckily, I'd bought tickets hours before so [livejournal.com profile] wink_martindale and I could enjoy our Sichuan meal nearby without rushing. There was a comedy show going on at the Rich Mix; all cinema goers had to take an elevator to the first floor and cut across a photography gallery while overlooking the show's stage.

After the film, the crowd was slow in leaving the cinema. Three people pushed the fire exit open and I followed them onto a deserted parking lot. A quick scan around made me realise it was completely locked up; I stepped back inside and the door slammed shut, locking those people outside.

Then I noticed my friend Natasha at the back of the crowd, praising the film to her boyfriend. "Ollie, what are you doing here?"

"You are dreaming about the film Natasha, and I'm visiting you in your dream."

She laughed. "What did you think of it?"

"I kept thinking about Slavoj Žižek and what he'd make of it,' I said before remembering that Natasha is slovenian.

Wink and I walked home, down Bethnal Green road. All the pubs were still open at midnight and quite a few people were engaged in arguments and fights on the street. I didn't have any dreams with Leonardo DiCaprio. But I have been dreaming lately of vampires.

Got Milk?

commonpeople1: (Icecream)
I've been milk-free for a week now. That means no milk, butter or cheese - though some traces might have been present in the 85% chocolate I bought the other day. Why did I start this? Because I wanted some relief from my hayfever. The itchiness and achooness hasn't gone away, but when I was at the community garden on Saturday I didn't feel as uncomfortable as before. I'm still on two/three tablets of Benadryl a day, which is annoying. My mother says it's only after seven days that I'll start to feel the difference. I love plants, grasses and flowers, but the feeling is not reciprocal.

I think everyone should go milk-free for a week, as an experiment. It's amazing how much milk is present in our diets. It's a good skill to learn to live without it, to be more creative in the kitchen. In terms of options, I think we Londoners are in a good position - our supermarkets are filled with alternatives. But we are way too bound to cows' tits.

On Sunday, I was lying in Victoria Park listening to a podcast (Expanding Mind) and they were talking about magic (in particular Kenneth Grant.) The guest was saying that it's dangerous to start a spell and not complete it - you leave it open for bad things to go in and interfere. Aleister Crowley went mad because of an incomplete spell. That got me thinking about art and, in particular, writing. I'm one of those people with tons of incomplete pieces of fiction at home; maybe the more "spells" I leave unfinished, the harder it is for me to complete something. It's a case of weakening one's own powers by letting the magic seep away through badly cast spells. I have therefore decided - in my best and most typical OCD way - to complete absolutely everything I write from now on. And to burn anything incomplete that I know I'll never touch again.

Let's see where all of this takes me.
