Unfortunetaly It Ain't

Pigman is trying to prove the Caine-Hackman theory. No matter what time it is, 24 hours a day, you can find a Michael Caine or Gene Hackman movie playing on TV.

The Parallax Redux

Apparently a more than 6-month old noctos post still generates some interest among the lovely indian filmgoers. Amitabh Bachchan is definitely popular as you can tell by these comments:

he is a god for 100 billion indian population

He is really great man and king of bollywood. His old movies are excellent. He is the best when he appears with Dharmendra. They both have worked together in number of films.

i think this is the pnly way a human comes close to being GOD. AMITAB is a massive hit. He has done great movies in India like kabhi-kabhi, sholay, silsiley but then i also can say that the movies he is doing in presnt years are more interesting and more mature acting.
no actor can be as famous as Amitab is.

the sexual behavior of male cockroaches and noctos visitors

Reto Schneider wrote The Book of Weird Experiments, which describes over 100 unusual scientific experiments (some are outragously strange, others extremely funny)

Anyway Schneider's web site gives generous excerpts, check some here (and notice the influence some experiments had, eg on the movies, 21 grams being a good example):

- The Falling Cats Experiment (+ video: Falling Rabbit)

- The 21-gram Soul Experiment

- The Six Degrees of Separation Experiment

- Dog vs Robot (+ video: Go Blackie)

Ho Ho, thank you for correcting my English which stinks

The 80's are hip, Murphy and Akroyd can be funny and JLC does the real frontal.

Support Your Local Underground

Received this through e-mail, don't know anything else about it but anyone who's interested, check it:

From: Suilven Recordings
Date: Sep 8, 2005 6:21 PM
Subject: free Suilven compilation

TheFirstTen – a Suilven Recordings compilation cdr containing tracks from each of the first ten releases – is available now for anyone, anywhere, and at absolutely no cost whatsoever. All you need to do is email with your postal address and a copy will be sent out to you free of charge.

In just over 2 years, Suilven Recordings has gained a considerable reputation:
“4/5” Sunday Times on Ridin’ The Stang by Daniel Patrick Quinn.
“Like Mark E Smith of The Fall joining a communal fireside improvisation led by John Cale…This is the kind of new ethnic music for imagined places that Brian Eno and Jon Hassell thought about…Like all the most inspired and inspirational music, Daniel’s transcends its influences and genres expressing an aspect of musical creation not heard elsewhere” The Unbroken Circle on Ridin’ The Stang by Daniel Patrick Quinn.
“Lovely stuff” Robert Wyatt on The Winter Hills by Daniel Patrick Quinn.
“This mesmerizing collection of shimmering soundscapes nestles snugly in the ambient tradition of Eno, Arvo Part and the now-retired Harold Budd” Eugene Weekly on Mercury by DAC Crowell & Kurt Doles.
“It’s an astonishing experience, the effect of which only becomes clear when it’s over” Logo Magazine on DAC Crowell/Kurt Doles.
“Suilven Recordings are becoming famous for their integrity and exclusion of anything other then creative factors” Whisperin and Hollerin.

If you are a broadcaster or webmaster and would like a few to give out as prizes etc then I’ll happily send a number of copies.

If you happen to know of some kind of outlet where you’d be able to leave a handful for people to pick up for free then by all means ask for 10 or 20 copies, or as many as you like…It would be much appreciated.

M. Richter

Like I told a friendly ghost yesterday
it's all about fall & winter
and well look here the first rose is blooming:

Fat Cat will release Vashti Bunyan's second album, produced by Max Richter, on October 17th.

Check here for a complete background or read what Max Richter said:

We've been working on it for the last 9 months or so, at my house and at various studios (Cava, SoundCafe, Eastcote).

It has turned out really well - Vashti is great.

A cast of thousands - Joanna Newsom, Devendra Banhardt, Otto Hauser from Espers, Kevin Barker, Adam Pierce (Mice Parade) all played.

Adem brought an Autoharp and a Harmonium painted red, with golden tubes sticking out the top.

Robert Kirby - arranger of Nick Drake's work, popped in to play the horn for us...

We borrowed my ensemble for strings - straight to 16 track/2 inch via the old MCI desk at Eastcote Studios.
