Daan Gijsman and Grumpje the dragon

Last week I saw a comic in the local newspaper by the 10 year old Daan Gijsman. Daan and his twin brother Jochem are pupils of mine at the Geert Grote School.
When I asked their father for permission to place this comic on pcl, he mailed me the adress of Daan's official website: www.daangijsman.nl
See how productive this kid is. Take a look at The adventures of Grumpje de Draak (Little Grump the Dragon).
He writes that he invented Grumpje in a dream. He draws comics since he was 7 years old and almost every week he makes a new one.
I hope (and expect) that we're going to see a lot more of Daan in the future

A new guest curator has joined the splusp group! Erik van Lieshout presents an album recorded by a Catholic Youth choir in the south of The Netherlands. "Over the years this Lp has provoked some very mixed reactions in my circles (Art acedemy students and the Art scene), on the few occasions I played a track as a dj some people had pretty traumatic memories of these songs..... So don't take it too seriously and don't forget to make the flowers sing!!!" http://www.splogman.com/splusp/beatmis.html

"Mixtapes" of Netlabel-Music

The netlabel scene is growing and growing and you can easily get lost. As a possible introduction I've made sort of a "mixtape" which is nothing more than a simple list of links to some tracks I like taken from various netlabels.

You can listen to it as a "stream" if you take that m3u-file or you may want go to weblog Machtdose where I have listed the tracks with a download-link for each one.

I've named the collection "roland's second journey through netaudio", because I made a first try one year ago. For that first collection there is also a m3u-file available (here). The tracklist with download links is there.

(The text of the tracklist sites is German - but nevermind, you should find what you want)

Kinda Kinky


This link may very well have been posted before, but it can't hurt to give kinda kinky another visit. There are a lot of short examples of the sitar in pop music.

Week 11: Dean Carter

If you´ve got a Cramps affinity you might have heard at least one track by Dean Carter. His over the top version of “Jailhouse Rock”, which you can find on Born Bad Volume Six (you´ll need everyone of the eight volumes of Born Bad, the greatest compilation series ever put together). But there´s more to Dean than that. Being completely out of time and place, recording his rockabilly influenced tunes between 1963 and 1967, he might as well have been cutting them in the twilight zone. And judging from this track he probably was. What a knock-out! You just have to love the arrangement and that chorus girl.

The name of Allah in a aubergine

"All we need is a miracle" some song says and maybe that's true. So, if you need a spiritual comfort, you should visit The Miracles Page. It seems there are miracles everywhere and every religion has its own: milk crying elephant statues, Crosses of Light, a white buffalo or the name of Allah written in vegetables (see picture above).

From october 1962 until october 1975 the weekly magazine PEP developed into something where Dutch comic lovers who found Donald Duck too childish could read "serious" comics.
Take the PEP-tour to see which comics qualified as such (click on the stamps to get an overview of that particular year)

Do we have a guest blogger?

I would like to have a guest blogger here next week.
Anyone interested?

If so, here are some ground rules:
1. You should know how to publish to Blogger (It's quite simple - but I have no time to give lessons...)
2. Your posts should stick to the flow that is PCL. (if you have been here before you probably know what it's all about.)
3. No politics.
4. Links to sexual explicit material is marked with a NSFW (Not Safe For Work)
5. No cat photos.

You don't have to post the way I do. You can write essays, babble, show your drawings, poems or... anything. Whatever! But a link here and there wouldn't hurt. :-)

If noone picks up on this, PCL will be a very quiet place next week. C'mon! It's fun! And you get a pretty decent audience (700 hits/day at the moment). Plug yourself!
If you're interested send a mail to mrdantefontana at gmail.com

Update: We have 2 guest bloggers! Roland and Jan. Please treat them nice! These two gentlemen deserve a great response since they are so nice taking care of business here at the PCL LinkDump. See you later!

Tom Slowinski

'Arab with Camels' [found in 'Advertising']

Slowinski "is inspired by contemporary American society. His works are thematic but not always exclusive to a single concept. Elements from different categories may combine and cross over. His works are both a social and a psycho-self portrait, a psychological interpretation of the material world." (via LinkFilter.net)

Horus Archives

Matt at Rashomon points to another interesting Hungarian photo exhibit. He writes: "Horus Archives is a collection of more than 200,000 amateur snapshots, collected and selected in Budapest by camera-man and film-maker Sándor Kardos. These 37 images shows that in art the business of looking, the way of looking at something, is central, featuring both the artist’s eye and that of the spectator."

Chicago-Sun Times Photo Essays

'A big sendoff'. Photo by Al Risser, August 31, 1943.
[From the 40s gallery]

Most of these photographs were taken on the spur of the moment, in an uncertain situation, with quick and instinctive framing, by photographers who were standing right there whether they were supposed to be or not. Most of them were taken before the era of smart cameras; there was not always time to use a light meter, so f-stops were chosen out of experience and instinct, and the light source was a flashgun and those old flashbulbs that were good for one shot. ...

The All-Time Top 100 Voices in the Movies

Sometimes a movie is only worth watching for its stars -- and sometimes a star is only memorable for his or her voice. filmcritic.com thought this phenomenon was so peculiar that we decided to rank the top 100 movie star voices of all time. Of course, we didn't just limit ourselves to bad actors (though you'll find plenty on the list). Some of cinema's best voices belong to the greats of the profession, too. (Some, like #96, won an Oscar based on a quirky voice alone.) These are the actors whose distinct voices (or special voice work) have made movies transcend what they otherwise might have been.

Hepcat Willy tells us: "Moïra had a short-lived career as a French-Canadian pop singer. Not a great deal of information out there on Moïra, so if you have any insights, I would love to hear them!

Week 10: Jimmy Wages

Fame never lifted her skirt for Jimmy Wages. To crudely uncommercial even for Sun Records poor old Jimmy never got a peek under that skirt. But in true southern fashion he knew, just as well as the Killer, that he sure was going to be damned for belting out that rock´n´roll stuff and he couldn´t stop himself either. If you´re going you´re going. Although the troubles of this weighed heavily on Jimmy´s mind. Unlike Jerry he wrote his own songs and they do indeed come from a troubled mind. Strange lyrics performed in true primitive fashion. Accordingly none we´re released during his days but four of those songs survived in the Sun vaults from sessions in, probably, 1957 and 1958. First out are two takes of Mad Man, followed by Miss Pearl. Both songs reflecting a somewhat unsettling view on women. Then there´s Heartbreakin´ Love, in my view the weakest of the four songs; standard rockabilly of it´s day (not that there´s anything bad with that). Then we round off things with Jimmy´s masterpiece: Take Me From This Garden of Evil. A vision of the conflict between good and evil with some moral judgement thrown in. And that´s all there is folks! We don´t know for sure who played what on these sessions but present in the studio with Jimmy Wages was Ray Harris, Jesse Carter and J.M. Van Eaton with Jack Clement turning the knobs.

"This album makes a great backdrop for a late night, scorpion bowl swilling, blind-drunk episode at your local tiki bar. Somehow I feel it's a wonderful soundtrack for madness, like smashing a 100 gallon aquarium or setting fire to your yacht during a party at sea. ..."

"Sex. Death. Freedom. These three ingredients combine to create an orgiastic homage to the outrageous -- perhaps the most outrageous movie ever to be committed to celluloid -- Pervert! The shocking story of salacious scandal. An experimental explosion of mental mayhem. A bloodbath brimming with very big bubbles. A titillating travesty. A comedy of epic proportions equal only to those of its actresses. A morality play without morals. A cautionary tale lacking in caution yet abundant in tail. ..."

Meco Monardo

"In May of 1977, people around America began lining up for a little-hyped science fiction movie.
After its first screenings, word of mouth soon spread and lines were forming around America’s cinemas - people were seeing the movie again and again as soon as the closing credits had rolled!
Over the next few days, the film was smashing box office records thanks to amazing special effects, great performances and a feeling of hope missing from films of recent years.
America was in the grip of Star Wars fever!
Among the people catching Star Wars a number of times in its opening week was the innovative musician and producer, Meco Monardo.
Captivated by John Williams' thematic score, Meco realised that he could use his talents to bring America’s love of Star Wars together with the other phenomenon sweeping the country – Disco! ..."

Aborted Tapes

Mark Vidler, the genius remixer, dj, producer, and machup artist, cleans out the closet:
"These tracks do exactly what they say on the box. A selection of still born ideas that may have only been good enough for a verse, or a chorus or 15 secs of amusement. Some are fully fledged mixes that were passed overfor better ones, some rejected by the bands or record labels, some that probably still have no right to be available for anyone elses ears but mine.....All tracks recorded sometime between 2003 - 2004."
GHP Aborted Tapes Vol 1. Some cool sounding stuff!

Don Mimmo

Up this week is at Pastor McPurvis' is Don Mimmo - "poet, musician, and Italian. Mr. Mimmo is a renaissance man of sorts, writing both music and words, as well as performing his works as only an Italian who sings love can. It’s all spelled out on the liner notes which anyone who truly wishes to understand the inner workings of Don Mimmo should read. The arrangements are very good (although not penned by Mr. Mimmo), his singing voice is smarmy but competent, and his lyrics often times venture off into the surreal. ..."
