YouTube: M.O. Apostrophe/Over-Nite Sensation

I don’t know how long this is going to be available on YouTube, but for now you can find the entire “Making of Apostrophe/Over-Nite Sensation” docu there. As it says “aired 21/4/07 on SBS Australian TV”, I reckon this to be the original TV-broadcast, not the DVD-version.

Part one:

Parts 2, 3, 4, 5.

Some YoYo Stuff

Evaristo kindly points out this 1993 Capt. Beefheart documentary by Anton Corbijn, available online.

His quite abrupt artistic transformation from working with a microphone to a paintbrush in 1982 and his consequent move from the desert to the ocean meant even less direct contact with the outside world than before. Subsequently there is very little information about Don from this time onwards and this short black-and-white film made in 1993 is an unique opportunity to see and hear this unique man.

I remember seeing this when it was first aired on VPRO. Well worth a moment of your time.

It Can’t Happen Here?

A Fascist America, in 10 easy steps is one scary read. Naomi Wolf:

It is my argument that, beneath our very noses, George Bush and his administration are using time-tested tactics to close down an open society. It is time for us to be willing to think the unthinkable – as the author and political journalist Joe Conason, has put it, that it can happen here. And that we are further along than we realise.

The Voice Of Cheese: Jan Goddaer

A bit of history: I used to play in a band called Inflatable Henry. Concurrently, Jan Goddaer was making rather big waves with TranceJazzTical. Following one of their gigs, I boldly stepped up to Jan and asked if we might join up for a jam. He agreed. We’ve since been playing music together in some form or other (Virgil Venus! Moonbug!).

The track presented here is entitled “Henry Has Left The Building” which is kind of funny, seeing as how at the time we were both looking for a breath of fresh (musical) air. This tune comes from TranceJazzTical’s self-released album “Saterdaynightitis” [sic!], and I happen to think it rocks.
