Anything but Contempt

08 Oct

Every trailer should be like this one. Jean Luc Godard, Fritz Lang, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli, a scarlet Alfa Romeo and Brigitte Bardot before she turned into a crazy lady frothing about the evil Moozlims. I’ve never been more excited about Greek statues!

But maybe the ability to cut a trailer of this sort is kind of like a superpower: it comes with great responsibility, young Peter! Can you imagine this movie:

This Screen.

Trespassers will be digitized
And burnt onto CDs.

The Man.
The Radio.

What is it
Neurological action
Biochemical reaction
World’s greatest fraud

Life is a radio
Different tunes


Life is a radio

Fuck buddies

Life is a radio
Different tunes

What is it?

And… Ta-da! :

Hmmm. Methinks The Himesh isn’t quite the Bardot.

    himesh should stick to being a ‘rock’ star in his movies .. his whole going hep turn makes me cringe but then the world is biased against poor himesh ..

      Why are you the only person who likes these things the way I do? Sigh. I thought it was a bit of ha ha. No more Jean Luc Godard + The Himesh posts.

    It took a few days to let this fully sink in. “I’ve never been more excited about Greek statues” — me neither, lol! That IS an awesome trailer.

    What’s even awesomer is that ditty derived from the Radio trailer (interesting to see Bollywood making movies titled Blue, Radio…) — ah the philosophical quandaries! 😀

    Btw, I just wandered into The Awl site on your blogroll and was quite taken (couldn’t help thinking you’re their ghost writer or something — similar style, so witty!). They also had this bit on Mad Men, which, incidentally, features a Brigitte Bardot hairdo. I’m so gonna take your advice and look up the show online!

      Natasha VC who write their Mad Men posts and has a Mad Men blog, is the one who actually led me to that trailer. I’d seen the movie a while back but I didn’t know this awesomeness was around! So yes, totally with you on the Awl love.

      The Awl kind of reminds me of the days when Gawker wasn’t the huge complex it is now, which is kind of fitting because these are ex-Gawker writers – but ex-Gawker writers who pretty much write whatever it is that they want to write about instead of writing the kind of hackery so much of the Gawker content has degenerated into.

      The only thing that bugs me about them sometimes is that they often write the things I want to write before I get a chance to do so! Like that post on Lindsay Lohan and Ungaro – I can’t believe they’re the only ones who saw it as a successful publicity stunt and everybody else is playing along!

        Wowza!! What are the odds? (though I’ve long given up gasping thus.)

        The Awl was hiding in plain sight all along and it took your Mad Men (as opposed to mad women… remember that piece with The Yellow Wallpaper?) to open my eyes to its wonderfulness. Hmmm. And Gawker, I haven’t heard of at all (but guess I haven’t missed much).

    I shut my mouth earlier because this one made me want to watch the himesh movie. thot of himesh in his multiplex avatar is funny enough.

    ok, that is enough confessions for the day.

    RS – Gawker used to be fun, now it’s just hackery international.

    Sachita – hee hee hee! Don’t worry, I’ll be there watching the movie right alongside! Max will probably join in too!
