Andy was giving a concert in Mainland China a fan broke through the security barriers to give him flowers and scream, "Wah Zai, I love you!" Andy shook his hand and then the security guards for the stadium jumped the fan and began punching and kicking him. Andy yells at them to stop, but they don't listen so...ANDY LEAPS FROM THE STAGE AND BEATS THEM UP. For real.Read the full story and see the video of it here.

note: Oops! Accidentally posted this to Popcorn & Sticky Floors, thinking I was on the page for my Kung Fu Fridays blog. I'll keep it here as it is still lurid enough to catch our audiences attention.

Picked these movie mags up a few years ago for 25 cents and just pulled them out from storage. And note the cool Marvel monster comic! I know thats making the ladies hot! Nothing like a sexy little glimpse of a grown man's comic collection...
Not going to scan them, but take the easy route and just take some snaps. One of them opened and I noticed a connection to the VHS of BREAKOUT that I gave Jesse for Xmas. We have to snap that cover for the blog! And Michael, your gift was that film on truckers on the highway of love...

Whatever the case, it's always a joy to see some touchstone of popular culture represented in adult entertainment. It's like you're in on it and hip. It feels that way still now after twenty years and it must have then, remarkably fresh and fanciful after just six years or so.

I would preface your pressing play by saying 'spoiler alert!' but I think it only applies to people with photographic memory.

One brief and gloriously sunshiny shot of Times Square raised my spirits and woke me up.
The Conformist, Redford and Mia Farrow delight!

I've chosen two recent pieces to share and I'm going with both this first time because when I was reviewing my thoughts I noticed that the pair come from the highly overpaid minds that were, in some capacity, also involved with "The Devil Wears Prada" which I also somehow missed during its run. They each seem to deal with somebody's idea of ultimate and perfect romance and I must state that I am not against this genre and I am a wholly sensual being who is familiar with feelings that don't necessarily make me wince. Believe it.
So, go with peace and be happy that you've saved a little money and if these two previews make you feel just a little nauseous, I apologize while simultaneously feeling a little better knowing that we're similar and in this often unfit world together and, I suppose, my work at this instant is done. But there will be more, you can wager on that.

- I tried to embed the video, but the code and/or their website seems to have some issues tonight, so in the meantime, here is the link.
Other fun stuff being posted this week at TFH including Joe Dante on the trailer to Terence Fisher's HORROR OF DRACULA (Jan 2) and John Landis on the trailer to ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST (Jan 4).
Edgar recently wrapped up his "The Wright Stuff" double bill film series at the New Beverly in Los Angeles where he presented an eclectic line-up of films with special guests. Paul Williams presenting PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE and BUGSY MALONE! FLASH GORDON and DANGER DIABOLIK with Timothy Dalton! Writer/director Shane Black with THE LAST BOY SCOUT and KISS KISS BANG BANG! John Landis with AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON and TREMORS! TOP SECRET and BANANAS! BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS and HEAD! RAISING ARIZONA and EVIL DEAD 2! Even though LA is a long ways away for most of us, luckily, we can experience the fab intro conversations with Paul Williams, Joe Dante and Timothy Dalton thanks to the podcasts over at metroblogging LA and CHUD. Here is an interview with Edgar about the series over at joblo.com.
I first came to reallize that Klaus had a son when I thought that this guy with funny eyes in the recent Raul Ruiz film KLIMT looked really familiar...
Nikolai Kinski even has his own website where he touts his modelling, musical and acting ventures. Wonder what Daddy's website would have looked like?It turns out that father Klaus had released nearly 25 spoken word albums straining his vocal chords for Rimbaud, Oscar Wilde, Jack London, and Shakespeare. Many of these performances have recently been re-mastered on CD. Here is a clip son trying to fill papa's shoes:
Kinski speaks Kinski: Nikolai Kinski speaks poems
Postscript: Crawling around the web looking for links, I found this zippy little quote from the Kinski-monster from wikipedia:
When Steven Spielberg offered him the part of one of the Nazi villains in Raiders of the Lost Ark, he turned it down, stating: "[...] as much as I'd like to do a movie with Spielberg, the script is as moronically shitty as so many other flicks of this ilk.", preferring a part in Venom (1981), reportedly because the money was better.
