'erin was the star'
oh also before he was there and i was in the lobby one of the two main female leads showed up and i had just been staring at the poster, which is a drawing, and then i saw her and realized after a few seconds that she was right there on the poster. funny.
i went to see return to nuke ‘em high volume 1 friday night. i got there early and was in the lobby of music box for a while. when i went outside to smoke lloyd kaufman was having his wife film him about how cold chicago was. (if he posts video blogs or whatever about the trip to chicago i may be in there for a few seconds) he had just arrived and hadn’t even been in the theater yet… they still were messing around with the camera when he was going in so i didn’t want to interrupt or anything, but after he looked inside he turned back in my direction and i smiled and then he nodded his head and said hello.
it was a pretty cool moment as i have been watching lloyd’s movies since i was seven or eight years old and the USA television network had a packaged deal with troma in which they played edited versions not only on their up all night show, but also on saturday afternoons. after i would see them i would just go and rent the non-edited ones from the video store. etc etc
also return to nuke ‘em high volume one was a really fun movie and i am looking forward to the second half eventually.
"yea well i make fun of you all the time."
"no you don’t. i don’t think you do, at least. wait. behind my back?"
"no. not behind your back. never. but i do make fun of you."
"that’s not true then. i’d remember it."
"yeah, but i’m always like… ‘goddamnit, kris!’ that’s what i do."
"oh, yeah you do. well then that’s not making fun of me. i just frustrate you."
"yeah. you’re right."

New Order - Age Of Consent
i’ve been buying movies direct from giuseppe andrews that he makes himself for about five years now and at this point the only ones i don’t have that aren’t available that i somewhat have proof of existence are the full version of wiggly harris and tater tots. both of which were edited into different movies. for a while he wasn’t selling any of them anymore and i had something like 30 movies that i thought wouldn’t exist anymore. he’d sell them for a few months and then take them off of his website. for now i still might have a few that he doesn’t sell anymore. i dunno. they all kind of flow into each other and i know he was going for this fassbinder thing and it worked just fine because he was churning out quality movies every couple of months.
his usual cast of one or two dozen residents from the trailer park he lived in are off putting at first but quickly become charming. a lot of them come and go, and come again and go again. some of them died. there are dedications. guiseppe and mary moved from the trailer park and have made a few new movies (don’t have all of them yet - most though) that still have a similar feel as the old ones, but the cast is just the two of them and they are in a different location.
