Hey Matey,

I finally got around to watching a DVD of The Rise and Fall of The Clash.

Please tell me, because I've forgotten, what your contribution was to that fine film.

Thanks.
The main things were interviewing Rudy and Pearl. I also helped with like providing bootlegs and stuff for some tracks they ended up using (Hate and War from that Leceister 77 show for example).
That is super cool. What a great experience. How did that come to be?
Danny Garcia was researching live tracks and 1984 footage that he could use and messaged me on youtube about a bunch of the uploads on my channel. We did a ton of back and forth as the project was developing. He needed someone to interview Pearl in LA and they asked me to go down. Rudy lives near me and he came down since I guess he knows her as well, so we interviewed both on the same day. I had met Rudy at Bay Area Clash events like Strummerville a number of times, but had never met Pearl. She was as cool as you would imagine and her house was filled with the coolest vintage stuff. My friend is a director and he hooked me up with a camera man who ended up flaking. I called my director friend up that morning and he came out and filmed it. He didn't have a tripod on him, so those interviews are a little shakier than the others, but it actually doesn't look too bad.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I was inspired(?) to revisit the discussion thread for the film (starting in the low page 30s) and experience again the frustration of those who didn't watch the movie but were nonetheless disappointed and betrayed by it. The miasma of the Clash really can't be contained.

That is fantastic. Thanks for that.

Seriously. The guy who wrote the lyric "Our house is a very, very, very fine house" doesn't have much room to talk smack.

I actually like David Crosby's music just fine, and his Twitter persona is hilarious. But he's off base on Titus Andronicus (tho amusingly so).

This campaign was plastered all over every ad slot in the subway car I was riding in this afternoon:

Image

Then I looked at what they actually do...https://www.openbiome.org/.

Yup, Dr. Hoy opened up Greater Boston's first ever full-service stool bank donation center. Across the street from the Commie bar in Cambridge where Flex, Boddington, and I got shitfaced two springs ago before drunk-dialing eumaas. And they're offering cash rewards at $40 a *plop* for your Hanky loaf if you sign on for a 2-month, 3 shits-per-week stint at their dropoff location. Provided you follow the proper brown rice dietary restrictions...and, please ladies, no fatties allowed.



On the way back, I was riding in another subway car with another one of these same Heroic Shitter ads from the series. This one where the 2D-cutout cartoon Hoy stand-in flashing the "Eyyyyyy!" thumbs-up woke up, had a vigorous 2k morning run, took a magnificent beast unit of a dump, then totally aced the sales presentation that got him the big promotion. In that...exact...cause-effect...sequence.

On the next ad slot over on the other side of the door was this:
Mind-Body Study of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

(with below morose-colon sad piccy...)
Image
...wherein you can volunteer to be paid in cash to take a bunch of placebo sugar pills and meditate over yoga or something like that, with a study objective aiming to prove that conquering IBS is a mind-over-matter battle. Or, scientifically speaking, activate the right neurotransmitters in your brain's primordial soup through positive thinking to cure your Crippling Ass Depression forever so you no longer shart involuntarily while suffering through unbearable gas pain.

Thus, apparently, allowing you to be the championship-caliber manure factory you always in your most self-actualized dreams wanted to be...such that you can earn a 401(k)'s worth of nest egg pooping into a bottle for months on end at the friendly local stool bank concern in the next ad slot over (a joint venture of CompuHoyGlobal Chemical Manufacturing LLC and Matsumura Fishworks™).

Goddamnit, Hoy's figured out how to monetize his shit!! :curses1:

Seriously. Whenever I see an ad about some pooping treatment or some such, I immediately connect it to Hoy. Well done, son, you're a shit god in my books.

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
