The filming of Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s latest novel, “Memories of My Melancholy Whores”, the story of a bachelor who for his 90th birthday decides to give himself the gift of a night of “wild love with an adolescent virgin.”… Never got off the ground. The movie has already been protested against and lost it’s funding without one “action”, being heard.
An anti-prostitution group is seeking to block production, charging the movie will promote child prostitution. But it seems the book was ok and would not have same impact as a film would, and eventually TV.
This is a very interesting story playing out. One thing to note, this is all taking place in Mexico where laws are a bit “different”. Although, if we are able to censor ones work based on what one party thinks the possible outcome might be, I don’t know about you but that’s pretty scary shit. In no way are we endorsing prostitution, we are questioning this form of censorship. Read the full story at the huffpost and tell us your thoughts.
Wow, Neiman Marcus you’ve amazed me again. After looking at this guy, I wonder if The Onion could pull off a PSA about the dangers of eating cupcakes? Ha. Or maybe it just seems a little pedo to me after reading this part of the sales pitch…”Ever had a crowd of kids chasing after you just for the crazy gleeful heck of it?” Because I think Pedos get off to the word gleeful. Go on Neiman Marcus, go on.
Yang Ya-ching is a 27-year old blogger from Taiwan, living in Paris. She has this project where she wants to kiss 100 strangers in France and have each photographed. She’s well on her way but, what I’m wondering is…why does she have to go and be such a tease? I mean, maybe these strangers are like ‘whoa, cute little asian girl wants to kiss me, maybe we can slip on down to the Seine and really spice it up?” Or maybe not.

Check out the trailer for the remake of the 1973 George Romero classic. The good thing is that he signed on to produce, so the film hopefully will not be butchered! I love the end of the trailer the best.
In 1878 lady liberty was not exactly all together. The massive head was on display at the Paris International Exhibition. Attendees to the exhibition could pay to walk around in her head. You have to admit its kind of freaky,very Planet of the Apish.
There seems to be a bit of a revival of industrial music these days, Pigface, KMFDM, and the Revolting Cocks are all out touring. Maybe it was a bad time for Trent to take a break? If you’re in the Chicago area tonight and have tickets to the Revolting Cocks show, you will get a little treat. Al Jourgensen (Ministry), joins them on stage as the special guest. He will also be with the band as they play NYC’s Irving Plaza on the 17th. After party is going to be at Crash Mansion. (btw, I really hate the name of that place, sounds like a video game)
