Last Chance For A Slow Dance - Fugazi

It's funny, but I've never really listened to Fugazi despite liking what I know about them and my path crossing theirs in a small way a couple of times. A friend set up a show of theirs in San Francisco and I attended. Unrelated to my friend, I ran into a couple of guys from Fugazi and hung out with them one night in Dublin (1994, they were in Dublin for Bloomsday).

They're ok. A bit too preachy and edgy lol. How did they seem to you? I know they didn't want to do Rolling Stone interview because they advertise alcohol and tobacco. My ex-wife got me into them. I prefer earlier Ian MacKaye's bands more though, Minor Threat and Embrace.

Get Down - Curtis Mayfield

Ian MacKaye wasn't there, and these guys didn't seem straight edge. It was a long time ago, and we didn't discuss the band or politics, and they had no problem being in a Dublin bar with people drinking. They seemed like normal, slightly arrogant guys, and really didn't make much of an impression on me.

^^^My ex girlfriend hated that young folks song with passion. She'd literally put her hands over her ears until it's over or turned off. Said it caused her mental pain. o_O^^^

I can see this. The same elements that make a song "catchy" usually make them grow really annoying quickly. The video is meant as a spoof (hopefully), but it's potentially even more annoying. The problem with following a version of Lars von Trier's Dogma 95 "Vow of Chasity" is that it reduces the variables and limits the options.

Can't remember if I saw his Dogma and what it's about, but I went to the movie festival and watched 6 hours of his "Kingdom" TV series slapped together. It was painful to endure 6 hours in a row but series was very good. Kind of horror/comedy/psycho thriller all in one.

I watched also watched "The Kingdom" this way, with a short intermission, at a theater in Berkeley.

Here is Lars von Trier's version of @g4driver's rules:

Dogme 95: The Vow of Chastity (abridged):
I swear to the following set of rules drawn up and confirmed by Dogme 95:

  1. Shooting must be done on location. Props and sets must not be brought in.
  2. The sound must never be produced apart from the image or vice-versa.
  3. The camera must be handheld. Any movement or mobility attainable in the hand is permitted.
  4. The film must be in colour. Special lighting is not acceptable.
  5. Optical work and filters are forbidden.
  6. The film must not contain superficial action.
  7. Temporal and geographical alienation are forbidden.
  8. Genre movies are not acceptable.
  9. The film format must be Academy 35mm.
  10. The director must not be credited.
Furthermore I swear as a director to refrain from personal taste. I am no longer an artist. I swear to refrain from creating a 'work', as I regard the instant as more important than the whole. My supreme goal is to force the truth out of my characters and settings. I swear to do so by all the means available and at the cost of any good taste and any aesthetic considerations.

In 1995 a collective of Danish directors, including Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg, established the manifesto above to govern the manner in which their films were to be shot. Dogme 95 - The Vow of Chastity has already resulted in two interesting films. Both were shown at the London Film Festival 1998, von Trier's Idiots and Vinterberg's Festen.

@Mike Bulgakov Last Trier's film I've watched was Breaking The Waves from 1996. It was interesting and good in an unusual way.
