Amazon sent me an email to say that they noticed I had recently ordered some Grace Jones and that I may be interested in ordering some John Cougar Mellencamp.

Oh, man. Thanks for sharing that.


Let me ask you about someone completely different. You really met Leni Riefenstahl?

"Yes! I wouldn't make it up. I've been a fan of hers since Triumph of the Will. I mean, that woman was one of the greatest filmmakers that ever lived."

How did you come to meet her?

"She knew I was a fan, and I was over there [in Berlin]. Nastassja was doing a film with Wim Wenders. Came to the hotel one day and there was an invitation—she wanted me to have lunch with her. And that's the most incredible meeting I've ever had in my life. Because I knew all about her. She was Goebbels's girlfriend—he was like the publicist for the Third Reich, you know. She looked like Hedy Lamarr when she was young. She said she used 211 cameras. I said, 'Why?' She said, 'We were doing a recruitment film for Hitler—think I'm going to tell Hitler, "One more time, Adolf!"?' And then she told me something that really hit home. She told me everybody in the Third Reich was on cocaine. See, I worked for pimps when I was 11, and they used to do that, too—they'd take cocaine because it raised the propensity for violence, from the primate brain. That's the primate in us, the four F's: Fright, Fight, Flight, and Fuck. I never understood why sex and violence were so commercial—it's the primate brain, the animal brain. Heavy."

She saw Hitler using cocaine?

"Of course, man! She was Goebbels's girlfriend."

So how does she think it affected Hitler?

"Well, shit, the history proves how it affected him. He killed every motherfucker he could see."

You think a huge part of the horror of Nazism was just down to cocaine?

"I think it had a lot to do with it. When she said that, it opened up a door for me. Because I've been around that shit all my life."

Amazing. :lol:

His Manson story has some timeline issues, though, which the editor if not the writer really ought to have caught:

In early 1969, Steve McQueen called Jones and asked him to go and see a rough cut of Bullitt. Jones brought along his hairdresser, a man named Jay Sebring, and after the movie, they made plans for later that evening.

"He said, 'I'll meet you at Sharon's, because I've got some stuff for your hair,' " Jones remembers. "I was losing my hair."

But Jones didn't go. "I forgot about it," he says.

The next morning his friend Bill Cosby called from London.

"He said, 'Man, did you hear about Jay?' Because we all used to hang out together. He said, 'Did you see that he's dead?' I said, 'Impossible, man, I was with him last night.'"

At the dinner party Jones had missed, at Sharon Tate's house, all five guests had been brutally murdered.

The Tate-LaBianca murders occurred not "in early 1969" but in August of that year... nearly a year after the release of Bullitt.

I remember reading about that one in CREEM at the time - but I was living in Turkey so never got to see it.

Or these others, for that matter.

I had a melody stuck in my head as I was walking to work this morning that was driving me mad because I couldn't figure out what song it came from and two other songs with similar bits of melody kept popping into my head and supplanting the original so that I started to lose track of which was which. Anyway, I got it all sorted out in the last ten minutes of my walk - the mystery song was 'Dollar Days', by Bowie, and the interlopers were 'What Becomes of the Broken Hearted', and the little flute bit at around the 14:20 mark of 'Suppers Ready' by Genesis. In case anyone's interested.

Fuck me, that's a right dreary old loads of pseudo-intellectual bollocks about a fairly dull ambient techno album.

"Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop of “Rue the Whirl” shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world."

Fuck off, you cunt.

'Stoney End' by Barbra Streisand just came up on a shuffled up playlist.
I checked who it was because I thought it was Laura Nyro.
I liked the song...how can this be?
I thought Barbra Streisand was uniformly terrible.
So confused right now.
:?
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

The "budget olides station" here play the Babs version of Stoney End pretty regularly, and I'm always up for it. Helluva jam. Song/voice synergy.

I'm not going to claim to be any major Streisand apologist, but there's a couple of numbers that I like.
