    ^ Ah, cool! Vashti Bunyan has an interesting story, I am sure that documentary is a good watch.

    I have a Roky Erikson documentary TiVo'd that I keep forgetting about. I reckon that's gonna be good.

    The Jandek documentary was pretty cool, I thought. For Fans Only, I would think.

    Hmmm, this may be good, because I teach one of his essays. Thanks a lot! EDIT: Where do I get a copy? Doesn't look like it's been released on DVD.

    Zeitgeist is pretty good too. This is really nothing new. The new world order has been in the works since the 18th century (at the latest). Funny that this topic has made its way onto the boards. I've always wondered how people here felt about this.

    I thought it was terrible. No offense, but that stuff is childish.

    Childish in what sense Faust? The diluted and didactic delivery of the fundamental premise or the "conspiracy theory" in general?

    -piece by piece (covers graffitti in san francisco)

    Well, the whole treatment of 9/11 was BS, and the entire astrology masturbation on the origins of the Western religion seemed pointless, and I kinda stopped watching after that. I don't doubt that the world is run by very powerful parties with vast vested interests, but there are more serious films and books that are devoted to that subject. I am reading one right now, Naomi Klein's The Shock Doctrine. While this books is not without a bit of far fetched theory, the sheer amount of research is mind boggling and eye-opening.

    Agree that Naomi is wonderful, have read the bool and watched the documentary....is it not a smaller part of the the whole?...I think you may like Alan Watt "Cutting through the Matrix"..on itunes or website, read Tragedy and Hope if you have the chance, Carrol Quigley, historian for CFR.....

    Just watched this. It's really good. Hughes is the man, I don't give a shit what people in the art world say about him. Now, I need something to turn .avi file into something I can play on a DVD and show this to my class.

    The Art of Failure is an interesting look at Chuck Connelly's life and work. The East Oak Lane neighborhood in Philly is like another character in the documentary; I lived in this neighborhood for a number of years, I reckon, maybe only a few blocks from where Connelly lives. If my head was in the right place, I would have loved to play the role of Fred Scaboda---I think I could have pulled it off.

    i thought the art of failure was horribly done.

    i barely made it through it, which was lame because i was out of the country when it was on iCONTROL, so i had to wait around to finally catch it on hbo.

    i kinda agree that it was horribly done, but it suited the subject, i think.

    I watched whatever was available of 1972 Rolling Stones doc Cocksucker Blues at last, today. It was better than Shine a Light, that's for sure...kinda tedious watch, if anything I think it gives a good portrayal of the massive boredom that surrounds a rock star's life when he's not on stage. Whole thing is like watching a blurry trip.

    I love Cocksucker Blues.
    Being in a hugely successful touring band is my worst nightmare.
    That doc confirms my fears.
