My Favorite Movie of All Time: Turkish Delight!!!

Turkish Delight or Turks Fruit is a artfully raw and some what brutish Dutch film from 1973. Directed by Paul Verhovens and shot by Jan De Bont . This film is based on one of the best-selling Dutch books Turks Fruit a twisted romantic tale of bohemian love.  Rutger Hauer plays Eric Vonk a poor and strong-willed artist who falls in love with the young and free-spirited Olga Stapels played by Monique Van De Ven. The cinematography is unique and inspiring and the colors are incredibly vivid!! I am always mesmerized by the starring actors and how perfectly they fit their roles. If you like romance, sex, violence, art, fashion and the 1970s you have to see this film!!! But just a warning it really isn’t your typical chick flick….

Bowiemas S.F.

That’s right Bowiemas will be held in S.F. for the very first time this Saturday!!!! We are looking forward to celebrating our ninth year of Bowiemas in a brand new city. If you happen to be in the bay area and like David Bowie you must come to and celebrate his sixty sixth birthday with us. It’s an all night dance party with nothing but Bowie played and a few tracks by artist he has worked with or been inspired by. Everyone dresses up as their favorite Bowie incarnation and at midnight we do a mass in his honor. It’s a fun and wild time with so much glitter and so many smiles!!!

Found Footage: 1978 Fantastic Animation Festival

http://archive.org/details/1978FantasticAnimationFestivalVhsRip

Pretty sick 90+ minute collection of animated shorts from 1978. Flip through and enjoy these strange little moving picture gems! The quality of the VHS rip is a let down, but regardless is filled with spectacles.

Mountain Music around the 58 minute mark is a magical thing with baby animals and weird hippie puppets strumming in the woods and then WHOA amplifers grow out of the soil and nature starts to jam hard! I think it bummed out the animals, though. I think the moral of the story is that rock and roll makes volcancos erupt? Alright!
