Very Rare Footage of Fotheringay

Sandy Denny's non-Fairport band(in this case fronted by her husband, the late Trevor Lucas) doing Bob Dylan's "Too Much of Nothing." I'm hardly a folkie(though you may have noticed, my taste is very, very eclectic), but I make a big exception when we're talking about British folk-rock. I'm a sucker for it.


For instance, here's also Richard & Linda Thompson doing "A Heart Needs A Home" on the BBC in 1970.


And let's add Trevor Lucas again, fronting Fairport, with the haunting "Polly On The Shore."


Oh, and before I forget--Don't forget to check in at This Sickness! Keep those pageviews coming, and thanks once again to all of you for your support.

Manderlay: See It

The most recent film by Lars Von Trier is out on DVD, and I just finished watching it. Possibly one of the ten most morally tricky and disturbing movies I've ever seen(even more so than Dogville, to which it's a sequel). In case you haven't heard, it's about an American town in the 1930s where slavery never ended.

As someone who was not only raised in Charleston, SC(a place probably more guilty regarding slavery than any other, as it was the commercial conduit through which the whole business was transacted--think of Wall Street and stocks and you get an idea), but in fact has plantation owners in his family tree--and I imagine this must be how the grandchildren of German Nazis must feel--it's a particularly raw issue for me. I remember about a decade ago, back in Charleston for a few months, watching Politically Incorrect(remember that?) with some friends and the issue was SC's ridiculous insistence on retaining the rebel flag at Columbia's state house.

There was a little bit of a discussion and argument amongst myself and my friends. I said the damn thing should be burned; the South not only lost, it was wrong in the first place, and it has to grow up and accept it, otherwise it'll always be the bitter backwards part of America, obsessed with its past(a very Southern disease, as anyone who's read Faulkner will know), and delude itself into thinking itself a victim, instead of coming to terms with its past and improving.

Which, despite the rebel-yelling rednecks, they've largely managed to do.

I was the only one in the room who was born in the South, that had not only roots there but roots specifically relevant to the discussion. I was also the only one in the room who didn't go off on a pathetic, angry defense of the rebel flag as "heritage." (of what? Whipping black men till their backs were red ribbons of ruined flesh? Whatever) Which says something about that debate, I think. Those who defend that flag the most have the least true stake in it.

I'm still piecing together just what I think of Manderlay, but I think it'll take a few more viewings. But you? Check it out immediately.

The Shrinking Christianist Republican Demographic

In a further sign of a growing pattern:

The number of people who consider the Republican Party friendly to religion has dipped below half in the last year, with declines among white evangelicals and white Catholics.

So now that they've embedded an overt comfort with sociopathic decision-making, human dispensibility and Spencerian backstabbing into the culture(look at your boss or bosses, and co-workers, the past six years), they're moving on to finding new ways for ethnic groups to hate each other. We needed more of those!

Christian Coalition Shrinking

In Alabama, Ohio and Iowa, whose chapters are splitting off entirely. That's a lot of red--uh, staters.

Which means Pat Robertson must really be screwing up. Or maybe they got angry because, in one of the few lucid moments of his career, he recently admitted the existence of global warming.

Whatever. This also means the GOP is losing one of its primary means of votes and contributions. Whereas corporations may make up the shortfall, they can't vote. (Well, except Diebold) And they give to both sides. Even Enron did.

It'll be an interesting and, hopefully, satisfying fall election. As we know from 1992, the only thing that assures Republican success is a huge war chest.

Saddam and 9/11: Bush Declares No Connection

From a Sidney Blumenthal piece at Salon, a lovely bit of probably unintentional candor from the chimp's press conference a few days back:
Asked at his press conference what invading Iraq had to do with Sept. 11, Bush seemed so dumbfounded that at first he answered directly. "Nothing," he said, before sliding into a falsely aggrieved self-defense -- "except for it's part of -- and nobody has ever suggested in this administration that Saddam Hussein ordered the attack."
Of course, the last bit is a lie. Fox News, conservative attack dogs like David Horowitz, and Cheney, have certainly been busy doing that very thing(which means that Bush is calling them all liars). But this is something they need to be held to. Because without that suggestion, which many still believe, we would never have gone into Iraq, and just think how many thousands would still be alive and how much of our national resources would not have been wasted.

"Snakes On A Plane" Crashes

It bombed, as it deserved. This is being taken as proof by executives in Hollywood that internet hype does not help a film, but I think they're missing the point. Obviously this worked for the Blair Witch Project, but that's because they made you curious and masterfully created a completely synthetic myth, to the point that many believed the main characters were real people and that they actually died.

The reason SoaP became such a phenomenon was because of its apparent and clear high-concept dumbness. It was being mocked, not hyped, and Hollywood, lacking irony and desperate for a hit, thought this meant that the public was really hungry to see a movie about snakes on a fucking plane. No, they just were making fun of Hollywood's total lack of imagination. And that costs nothing.

But when you actually have to pay money to sit through two hours of total crap, things change. "So bad it's good" isn't worth ten bucks, particularly if you can just wait for it to come out on Netflix. And also if the movie is, in fact, so bad it's, uh, bad. In another era this film would have been wisely, quietly shelved. Oh well, maybe they can make some of it back on airline showings. Oh wait...

Someone Wants To Keep His Seat

...And obscure his whoring for the Republicans. Lieberman has publicly called for Donald Rumsfeld's resignation.

And as a sign of just how badly Bush has done with his "political capital"(remember that?), he's even losing Tony Blair. Which is like Heckle losing Jeckyl.

The alliance between George Bush and Tony Blair is in danger after it was revealed that the Prime Minister believes the President has 'let him down badly' over the Middle East crisis.

A senior Downing Street source said that, privately, Mr Blair broadly agrees with John Prescott, who said Mr Bush's record on the issue was 'crap'.

The source said: "We all feel badly let down by Bush. We thought we had persuaded him to take the Israel-Palestine situation seriously, but we were wrong. How can anyone have faith in a man of such low intellect?"

Sore Loserman

Well, Lieberman didn't go completely to the dark side. He's just decided to be the dog in the manger in this election.

Sen. Joe Lieberman filed to run for re-election in November as an independent, saying Wednesday it would be "irresponsible and inconsistent with my principles" to quit. But Democratic leaders in Washington rallied around the man who beat him for the nomination, Ned Lamont.

In a statement issued in Washington, two top Senate Democrats - Harry Reid of Nevada and Chuck Schumer of New York - said they "fully support" Lamont, an anti-war candidate who tapped into voter anger over Lieberman's support of the Iraq war.

"The perception was that (Lieberman) was too close to George Bush and this was, in many respects, a referendum on the president more than anything else," said Reid and Schumer, the party's leader and the head of its campaign committee, respectively.

Similarly, Lieberman's fellow Connecticut senator, Chris Dodd, who had been campaigning for Lieberman, said he regretted his close friend's decision and would now campaign for Lamont.

The final returns from Tuesday's primary showed Lamont defeating Lieberman 52 percent to 48 percent.

Leading one to wonder (a) where, oh where he will get his support from as the DNC is backing Lamont, and (b) what sort of excuse for a public servant refuses to abide by the decisions of the voters. The seat is not yours, Joe. You hold it for the people, and they don't want your dead weight in it anymore. Be a goddamn man and deal with it.

Oh, and (c) his "Principles?"

Lamont Trounces Lieberman

And thus ends Joementum. Perhaps now the other Democrats will see where the wind is blowing and grow spines. (here's a great postmortem by Andrew Sullivan)

Remember, Joe. Dance with the one who brung ya. But in fact he still hasn't learned that, because he spoke of this defeat as just one battle in a war he refuses to leave. He seemed to still be nursing the delusion he can run as an independent. Perhaps the Republicans will take him; it's not like he has anything to lose by putting both feet on the deck of the sinking ship. And also, the candidate they had prepared--if any--was no doubt a weak one, as the last thing the GOP wanted was to lose Lieberman. He's their pet Democrat.

I bet he joins the GOP. Let's watch.


The pictures that ended a career.

Here's Lamont recently on Colbert:


And Lieberman's completely lame ad against Lamont, which is an abuse of animation, but that only underscores Joe Lieberman's historical tone-deafness on cultural issues (and incidentally, it's very amusing that he's accusing the other side of being a cat's--er, bear's--paw for larger influences). Fitting a censor should make such a crappy cartoon.


And you wondered why I had it so in for him; it wasn't just his support of Bush, or the war. Lieberman, remember, is also a would-be censor. We're well rid of the fella.

This Sickness has begun at Adult Webcomics, and will show you utter filth every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for the foreseeable future. (also, it's tooncastable, but not here. Go there for comics and details.) It's an umbrella title for, well, pretty much any smut I feel like drawing. And it's ad-supported, unlike the other Webcomics Nation(of which this is a part--that's Moderntales.com and the like, which do not allow "explicit" material) sites, so you can read it for free. So--if you're over 18--you know you wanna click.

But be warned--it's definitely not safe for work. The first five installments: Rosa & Annalisa in "a." Next, starting August 18, the much longer and never-before-seen (because Eros Comix bumped it for "Gulag Gangbang") "Soft Ceiling," which is the real smut. This is just the overture.

And coming in a little while, Vladrushka herself. (Who, I remind you, now adorns some lovely merchandise which you should buy)

I knew I remembered seeing this as a kid! The cartoon video for Jim Croce's Bad Bad Leroy Brown(apparently sung by Sonny & Cher, as it appeared on their TV show, but hey).

Katherine Harris and the supporters she knows must be hiding someplace.

I've spent much of my life finding Victor Borge annoying, so it's quite a shock to see he did one of my favorite bits from, yes, again, The Electric Company.

There's A Hole In The Bottom Of The Sea

And now a little live action from The Electric Company. (with Morgan Freeman, in the days before he played the black mentor to the white leading man in almost every freaking film)

When I was a kid I had the worst crush on Judy Graubart(the brunette who isn't Rita Moreno; you may remember her as "Jennifer of the Jungle). Probably explains my fixation to this day on brunettes. And 70s-looking women.
