When Ronald Wilson Reagan, Mr. 666 himself, died, an overwhelming, burning obsession grabbed me. I *had* to watch "Repo Man." I absolutely HAD TO. It just was the right thing to do. And it held up as being a great freakin' movie to this day. "Repo Man" is a testament to the fact that Punk outlived Reagan. My husband Richie Hass is now playing in one band with Chuck Dukowski from Black Flag and SWA, and in the deathless Saccharine Trust with original members Joe Baiza and Jack Brewer. He's also in Joe Baiza's Universal Congress side project. There are now three generations of punk rockers floating around, from the people who started it in New York in the '70s to the LA Hardcore generation depicted so well in "Repo Man" to the newbies of today. I suppose generation 2.5 was the Seattle thing, but everyone knows Seattle was an outgrowth of the LA/Pedro/SST scene. If Punk survived Reagan, it will survive Bush. Oh yeah, I had a whole bunch of the Ralphs' generic swag. I bought several generic |Mug| mugs, (Richie and I had a rack full of them) had a generic ball |Hat|, and a few generic |T-Shirt| t-shirts. However, aside from the mugs which survived for years, everything else fell apart quickly. The last |Mug| perished in the Northridge Quake. I don't think I had a surviving |T-Shirt| two years after I bought 'em. BTW: the secret of what was in the |Food| can? That was Ralphs generic Corned Beef Hash. They did a short run of those with the |Food| label on them for Edge City Productions. The revelation is on the commentary track for the DVD.

There is no way of requesting this on Eventful Demand, so I will have to do it here. San Diego Comic-Con. Please. PLEASE!

This is not the only SW car in California. Obi-Shawn Crosby was tooling around in his famous H-Wing until it got totaled in an accident last year. H-Wing Site The H-Wing is not as thorough a mod of a car as this Landspeeder mod, but it's still "most impressive." Shawn is also somewhat responsible for my humiliating myself on the whole goddamn Intarweb with my lightsabre tutorial. ^_^ My complete saga of creating a lightsabre without metalworking tools is here: The Hardware Store Jedi I learned how to do this from Obi-Shawn and his buddy David Milano at their workshop at Anime Los Angeles this January, and documented my own build experience step by step, thanks to the unblinking eye of my camcorder. There are links on the HSJ site to an HTML tutorial, a full downloadable "LoFi" QuickTime tutorial at Archive.Org, and part one of a four-part Flash tutorial on YouTube. (Parts 2-4 need to be edited down from the original iMovie project, encoded as QuickTime, then uploaded. Trouble is, the project is at college, not at home.) I'm actually pretty proud of the tutorial, all told. It's silly but it was enjoyable, geeky fun. Oh yeah, podcast would be nice. ^_^

I live in this damn town, and I hate the freaking Industry. I have two things to offer you during your wait. One: a funny story, and two, a link to something cool. Funny story: Ciye Cochise, the grandson of Cochise, was a stuntman/horse wrangler for a while in Hollywood. He went out for the role of his grandfather in the movie "Broken Arrow." The casting agent sized him up, chewed a little on his cigar, then finally spoke. "Nah, y'aint the type. NEXT!" Next, the link: a French photographer took his camera and his collection of Star Wars toys out on the streets of Paris for some photos. The results were magic. Guerres D'Étoile a Paris...

I like the Sony MD too. However, I too don't want to feed the Sony beast. No worries: I just buy mine used/refurbed on eBay. And I also buy Fuji MD blanks. Did that with my camcorder too...bought it refurbed on eBay because of political reasons. This is also why, as a rule, I buy used DVDs instead of going to theatres, and why I buy used CDs instead of buying new or on iTunes. The RIAA/MPAA need no encouragement. Of course, buying something indie is a whole different kettle of fish. No evil cartel or company involved, the creatives get the money, I'm happy.
