The Reel: EAU DE GAGA – A FILM BY STEVEN KLEIN (2014)

Black and white, oft-tred and well-read. Speak easy, swing hard. Record this life in absolute truth, to mine the media and peak the press, to establish mint, you beautiful bard.

If… IF I were to blinkk this I’d probably say … Fame Kills … like chewing on pearlsoysters and aphrodisies, flights of fancy and fights of fantasy … drunk in love on cake cake cake … love made edible incredible Anna Mae … the chosen one selecting apparent wanderlust servitude … will and desire … grace to transpire … mental gender on Parade … bonfire of the Vanity Fair … Parisian blazes … Harlem faces … eternal embers … Pompeii … knockout …

Russian Roulette is not the same without a gun, and baby when it’s love if it’s not rough you’ll never come … masculine … feminine … rocket number nine blast off to the Martian … Hephaestus in the bath haus … Aphrodite perched upon the partition …

EP 27.4 : “because you’re beautiful, drop dead.”

Fundamental Contemporary Pop premise #celebrityschadenfreude

If all I cared about was me, I could make a million. And that’s what they will never understand.

“It’s not that I’m rebelling. It’s that I’m just trying to find another way.”

I think something very weird’s going on now, ’cause the power that is permitted to youth is quite extraordinary. And they are sort of run by that kind of power.

re:verse : “US Placers” – Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Pharrell Williams, Thom Yorke

Good music speaks volumes… rather than impose analysis, step back and expose linguistic artistry… why critique that which has achieved perfection at its own masterful conception… listen, look, and linger in fantastic rhythmic reality: lyrically speaking

[Lupe Fiasco]
Life styles of the rich and famous
Bought a big house and a whole lotta rangers
Fresh new couch and a whole lotta trainers
A closet full of clothes and some brand new dangers
And some Mexican floral arrangers
A great big TV that’ll entertain us
Some colourful commissions for some high paid painters
Someone to take the wrap so that I stay stainless
And a new relationship with a banker
And two pinky rings for my manicured fingers
A trained German Shepard that bark when he’s angered
To watch my possessions and to look out for strangers
And a fifty foot yacht with an anchor
A young supermodel that should remain nameless
(The) ups and the downs the sames and the changes
All the money in the world won’t make it painless no…

[Chorus]
(But they love it and they love it)
The more you try to erase me
(and they love it) [x4]
The more the more
The more that I appear

The Reel: “Reminiscent Twilight” – Ace Fillmore, Miles Davis

A cinematic parallel capturing the aesthetics of Miles Davis’ psychedelic fusion jazz masterpiece.

 

“Reminiscent Twilight” … the perfect description for an album that looks back to the classic age of jazz, and simultaneously ahead toward the future of innovated sound – acoustic distortions so tangible you can taste them, feel them on your fingertips…

The Reel: “Free Falling” – Florrie, Jack A. Bowden, Archie Campbell

Sirens Round Two: “Free Falling” … English Channel tunage courtesy of Florrie #getgravitational

First seven seconds hit:

 

and it feels like taking a little something to channel loose wires…

Free falling… like I’m free… falling… it’s a change of course

Here I am, I sing the verse, sing the verse, sing the verse…

Upside down, and in reverse… in reverse… in reverse
