... Pure Nightmares before Christmas

Tim Burton has said the original poem was inspired after seeing Halloween merchandise display in a store being taken down and replaced by a Christmas display. The juxtaposition of ghouls and goblins with Santa and his reindeer sparked his imagination...

We've met before, haven't we?
I don't think so. Where was it that you think we've met?
At your house. Don't you remember?
No, no I don't. Are you sure?
Of course. In fact, I'm there right now...

... Pure Katamari Damacy

Katamari Damacy rules ! Een concept zo simpel als pompwater ... rol een soort magnetische bol en naargelang die groter wordt blijft er ook meer aan kleven. Zo rol je na een tijdje paperclips, zeeleeuwen, het peperkoeken huisje van Hans en Grietje, de heks, een sumoworstelaar die alsmaar dikker wordt enzovoorts ... en dan nog die schitterende psychedelische vormgeving ... oorwarmers anyone ?

... Pure Frank Vanderlinden

Youtube zegt: "Do not upload any TV shows, music videos, music concerts, or commercials without permission unless they consist entirely of content you created yourself" ... In deze tijd bestaat een mens voor 90% uit illegale acties ... en de 10 overige procent zal Sabam ook wel te pakken krijgen ...
... anyway Frank Vanderlinden is nog maar eens fantastisch ...

Moet ik dankbaar zijn?
Voor de krassen die je maakte
Op de plaat die ik graag draaide in mijn hoofd

... Pure emotions

... if you ever have the chance to see this movie ... please do ! The director Suzanne Bier is one of the heirs of the dogma-gang (see Lars von Trier), and I always wanted too see her dogma-movie called 'Open Hearts'. I still didn't see 'Open Hearts', but yesterday I saw one of her most recent movies called 'After the Wedding' and I'm still impressed. Maybe it's because of the camerawork (lots of close-ups and strange camerapositions ... dogma?), maybe it's because of the story (quite unexpected changes in the plot ...) which was made together with Anders Thomas Jensen ('Adams Apples', 'Wilbur wants to kill himself' ...) or maybe it's because of the actors (... pure emotions!) ... fact is it's one of the best movies i've seen recently, and I hope it will be playing in some cinema's over here ...

Wat een wijf !

Zopas het Freddy Mercury tribute concert bekeken. Naast het feit dat iedereen duidelijk onderuitging om de vocalen van Freddy te imiteren, had ik om één bepaald moment toch kippevel: 'under pressure' door David Bowie en Annie Lennox. Ja man, wat een wijf :)

As Simon would say: "never underestimate the importance of theatricality"

... Pure Sin

After I've seen 'Chien Andalou' from the director Luis Bunuel, a movie he made together with Salvador Dali, I can only wonder what the film is about... sex maybe?

In the movie there's a scène with a guy craving with desire for a 'girlie so groovy' (as Franck Black would sing) ... but then he's being held back by two priests, a piano and some dead donkeys ... kind of frustrating I guess. Maybe a man differs from an animal by his cultural and religious background. Making him unable to free his desires ...

Luis Bunuel once said: "Sex without religion is like cooking an egg without salt. Sin gives more chances to desire" So I guess religion has a good purpose after all: making sex a sin and thus making it more desirable ... now if I only could find a good religion ...

The scène is at about 7' in the movie ...

... Pure Fender

How to dress up a Fender ? I don't know ... but i'll try it anyway. I guess it's because my brother asked me too :)

... Pure White Space

There can't be blogs enough in this world ... so here's another one ... pure white and pure pure ... ready to be soiled and impurefied ... so I'm not sure it's gonna stay white ... not sure at all ... The artist take's the liberty to change colour anytime when the mood is begging me to ...

But here it is launched in pure white ... for the benefit of all ... like white rabbits in the snow ... like a dream ... but like Delmore Schwartz said: in dreams begin responsibilities.
