entertainment for two of your senses!

Okay, "entertainment" may be too strong of a word, but bear with me.

First, I bring you a little something for your EYES- my review of Bitch Slap, which opens today in Los Angeles and New York. My write-up is over at the fabulous Pretty/Scary, but I'll give you a hint about my opinion on the movie: I loved it. It warms my black l'il heart to know that there are other people out there who think Russ Meyer is (was) les knees du bees, and they're trying to carry his torch. Bravo, Bitch Slap...bravo.

For your EARS, well, if you feel like listening to me yammer, then you're in luck, friendos! The Graveyard Show actually asked me back for another interview, only this time I'm accompanied by my pal Shannon Lark. We talk about Ludlow and...I don't know. Other stuff, I think it's safe to assume. Truth be told, I go into some weird zone when I'm answering questions and I'm only vaguely aware of what's going on. Sometimes while I'm talking I have a sort of out of body experience where I can see myself blabbing on about something totally pointless. Other times, the interview turns out to be 3 hours long and I don't remember a thing I've said when it's over. But! You can listen to part one by making with the click click.

Hooray for things!

One look at that picture... not knowing jack about the movie... and I thunk, 'Oh, look, some smartypants went and remade 'Faster Pussycat Kill Kill'.
Now reading your writeup I'm supposing that's not exactly what it is, but I'm pretty sure it's got scenes of women kicking guys in the nuts.

It's definitely an homage (which is fine by moi) but it's its own film for sure. It's like Russ Meyer with the violence cranked up to ten! Or eleven, or whatevs.
