Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
One Week Only
I'm going to write about the Julien Temple picture Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten after I see it. If you're someone living here within reach of Tucson who is interested A) in the film's subject or B) what I'll have to say about the picture, you should know that it's playing for one week only, starting tonight, at The Loft:

Since this will most likely be the only film I ever get to participate in the making of, however tangentially, I am excited to find out how it turned out, despite the fact that people whose opinions I respect, both friends and critics, were not pleased with it. The notices have definitely been mixed, though there have been many positive reviews to go with the negative. And I'm inclined to think that, as someone who gets Temple's Sex Pistols documentaries, I'll find a way to redeem it, at least partially, from whatever missteps I perceive in its construction. I'm sure to try, at any rate. Oh, and if you're interested in coordinating a possible meet-up at the film, drop me a line.

We'll be there. Give B a call if you don't hear from him.

Awesome. I'll do that.

See you this evening.

Oh, and if you want to hook up beforehand, I'll be free around 8pm and already down in that area.

I'm definitely interested after seeing the preview the other night before I'm Not There. I'm thinking of going Sunday (Calexico tonight and the Cats play at 8 Saturday and I don't reckon they'll be done before 10).

Oh, right. I forgot about Calexico. Let me know what you think.

Re: strummer flic

Tangentially! I've been trying to find the time to write about it. I have photos from the "set," which was, as you may have guessed a campfire (together with former Stray Cat Brian Setzer's Airstream.)

Re: strummer flic

yeah, charlie -- give us some campfire stories, wont'cha? hey, i loved seeing joe near the end of the film with his hands all black, coated with charcoal. i understood the condition of his mitts then! you could almost smell the woodsmoke in the theater. wait a minute -- just writing about this, a black charcoally smudge appeared on my own hand -- charlie, this just might mean something bigger than the both of us ///

Re: strummer flic

Good point about the hands. I'll definitely cobble something together on the film very soon.
