Starcops clips — YouTube video

Theme and small clips for a space detective drama from 1987. Way ahead of its time.

The opening theme and the closing theme with credits! Oh. My. God. And some very brief clips from the show itself.

The Greatest SF TV Show Ever.

King Is Dead — YouTube video

Rare Super 8 home movie footage of the making of the end scene from the 1976 version of King Kong.

I think it was in The New York Times. A full-page ad asking for jillions of people to show up for filming of the climactic scene of Dino De Laurentiis‘s King Kong remake. I heeded the call.

As it turned out, I was quoted, anonymously, in the magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland several months later when an article about the filming was published. Oh all right, I hear your cries of anguish; this is what I said that was quoted:

’twas Dino killed the beast!

Yeah, stupid, but memorable (like most things I say!).

Even if you don’t want anything to do with a giant ape, go see this footage for the rare views of the World Trade Center Twin Towers when everything in front of it was nothing but one huge open plaza.

Look closely and watch the cop squeeze Kong’s big thumb!

Paddy Chayefsky‘s brilliance, his magnificent genius, motivates me to embed a YouTube video into this blog for the first time. And probably the last.

Watch it, god damn it!

The Farce on the War on Drugs

“Now envision a world where all drugs sell in state-regulated stores, not on street corners by teens which gets them killed. Imagine a world where the federal police focus on securing our borders from armed and unarmed invasion. Envision a world where terrorists don’t buy weapons from money made selling drugs. Imagine a world where felony crime drops over 50 percent and local police focus on drunk drivers, child predators and terrorists. Envision a world where if one day you or a loved one has a drug problem, you see a doctor not a judge. America can have this world, if it repeals its laws of the New Prohibition.”

What? You think the people who are so fucked-up on illegal drugs will be any better being fucked-up on legal drugs? Yeah, civil society will be just so much better when all those people can wrap themselves in the “Well, it’s legal” argument.

The War On Drugs has been bullshit because it’s been fought like bullshit. In nations where there is true zero tolerance and the ruling classes aren’t corrupt and in on the profits, you don’t see teens idolizing drug thugs.

Beemageddon: Organic Bees Not Disappearing

May 11, 2007

Organic Bees Are Thriving
While commercial bee populations are plummeting

Over the past few weeks we have highlighted reports that suggest bee populations are declining at rates of up to 80% in areas of the U.S. and Europe. Experts are calling the worrying trend “colony collapse disorder” or CCD.

While no one can pin point the exact reason as to why bees are declining so rapidly it is interesting to note that no organic bee keepers are reporting losses.

You’re still going to starve to death. Stock up.

Kenneth Eng’s Ass Is In Jail! Yeah, Baby! Thank You, Jesus!

Kenneth Eng Arrested For NYU Threats

Less than a week after Kenneth Eng — dragon enthusiast, insufferable pseudo-philosopher, furry author and racist idiot — told the Village Voice that he wanted credit for the Virginia Tech Massacre, he’s been arrested by the NYPD.

From villagevoice.com:

Eight hours after the executions of 32 students at Virginia Tech, Eng posted a grainy video of himself on YouTube. “Good morning, America,” says an exuberant Eng from his New York apartment, “I’d just like to say that I just read about the Virginia Tech incident and it was the funniest thing I ever read in my life.”

The video was pulled, and then reposted a week later. But now, Eng tells the Voice that he has something else to say about Cho Seung-hui’s bloody rampage in Virginia: He wants credit for it.

Eng likes to believe that his own hate-filled writings about non-Asians motivated Cho, and as far as we can tell, he’s serious. Eng also claims to “admire” Cho for the worst individual mass-murder in American history, and tells the Voice that he, at one time, planned to go on his own killing spree while he was a student at NYU, but couldn’t afford a firearm.

And:

Eng says NYU officials were correct to be concerned about him. “Frankly, I was planning on going to NYU and going on a rampage,” he says. “The only thing that stopped me was that I couldn’t afford a gun.”

Emphasis added by me.

I said this crazy motherfucker was dangerous! I’m glad someone with legal authority now thinks so too!

‘The Avengers – Must See TV’ (2005)

Apparent transcript of a 30-minute documentary of the classic TV series, The Avengers, hosted by Joan Collins(!). Introduction in what looks like Belgian, with the transcript itself in English.

A excerpt from the documentary is also on YouTube. [Update: Gone as of June 25, 2007.]

Index of this user which has additional Avengers-related videos. [Update: Gone as of June 25, 2007.]

Very Rare Movie On YouTube: Privilege

May 11, 2007

Oh my God. Someone has put up the entire film Privilege in 14 parts. I haven’t seen this in well over a decade, maybe two. I used to own the LP soundtrack.

The user’s index of videos is here.

Privilege Part One is here.

‘Privilege’, a cruelly compelling, often brilliant film … the real star … is director Peter Watkins, only 31, who must get credit for this acidly anti-establishment film … the quasi-documentary touches he mastered on BBC money are sharply and effectively in evidence. And in his first full-length film, he shows he can use color with startling success. No doubt about it: Watkins is on his way.’ (Playboy)

‘This is a bitter, uncompromising movie, and although it isn’t quite successful it is fascinating and important. Watkins made a mistake in bringing the newsreel techniques of “The War Game” into a narrative film, where a director should be able to make his point with his story, the performances and the photography. Still the movie isn’t a failure so much as an interesting episode in the career of a director who I think will eventually be ranked with Fellini and Bergman.’ (Roger Ebert, Nov 1st, 1967)

The national cinema circuit in the UK, J. Arthur Rank, refused to show this “immoral and un-Christian picture which mocked the Church, defied authority and encouraged youth in lewd practices”. Universal Pictures withdrew the film after brief screenings in a few countries, and the film has been rarely shown since – very occasionally on TV. Universal Pictures in Hollywood even refuse to let the director rent or buy a copy of this film, even on VHS.

For more information, visit the director’s website: http://www.mnsi.net/~pwatkins/privile…

For a nice essay on the film, see: http://www.brightlightsfilm.com/49/pr…

(I apologize for the godawful picture quality, it’s the only version of the film I got, since Universal still refuses to give this film a PROPER DVD-release… So please see this as a chance to watch this rare film!)

Did you note that final paragraph? You can’t buy this film even if you wanted to! And you wonder why I hate the Suits with all my heart?!
