LIVE NOW, WISE UP, DIE WELL: AN INTERVIEW WITH JUDY NYLON, PUNK LEGEND
'GILBERT AND GEORGE' AT THE 'WHITE CUBE' GALLERY
NOTES FROM THE HOLLYWOOD UNDERGROUND
"Porn stars, whores, and she-males have congregated outside the cyclone fence and they’re waging bets like this was the WWF. It’s a regular hootenanny. Three black chicks are rapping like modern-day Supremes. Vampires with sunglasses have stepped out of the nearby bars and sniff the air like dogs. The smell of perfume and cologne mixes with the smell of garbage. I can see vials and bills exchanging hands." Hollywood's Dostoyevsky? By Carter McCormack.
APPARENTDEPTH JOURNAL MOVES TO 3AM
Remember Natalie, the LA dancing queen who used to write her "Daily Depth" weblog in the now-defunct ApparentDepth? Well, she's back by popular demand. And this time round she's here at 3AM Magazine. Natalie, her job, her operation, her dance classes, her boyfriend, her ex-girlfriend . . . The 3AM soap starts here.
November 2000 - Big Pictures
"The use of the physically disabled/disfigured in film is almost as old as the cinema itself. Certainly the most famous instance of this phenomenon is Tod Browning's 1932 film FREAKS whose cast included dwarves, pinheads, bearded ladies and living torsos..." By Mike White.
THE FALL OF MAN
"When I was doing time at UMass, there was a seduction tactic we used to employ. We called it 'last man standing' and it worked on the simple notion that the last guy to leave a party or bar always got laid." By Justin Shaw.
NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
Psychoanalysis? Feminism? Yes, it's James Brundage's review of Wes Craven's slasher classic Nightmare on Elm Street. James tears this one apart - Wes Craven, welcome to Nightmare in 3 A.M. Magazine. Now you know what it's like to be scared.
Acclaimed S&M artist SARDAX tells Andrew Gallix that Art is a stern mistress.
DR. NO - 3 A.M. FILMS
"There's no business like show business, and nobody knows this like the men who made DR. NO." James Brundage deconstructs the James Bond phenomenon.
SATIRE - SURVIVOR BALTIMORE
"'Survivor: Baltimore' was simple. Twelve Americans and one Frenchman would be split into two groups and forced to survive on the streets of Baltimore." By Andrew Gifford.
"Write about the whole writing problem," my friend advised me, "Then you can spend each month exploring the dark underside of your own twisted life. You'll be a sensation, baby!" By Andrew Gifford.
Mike White's got a big clock and queer tale to tell - that of Kenneth Fearing's novel and its subsequent screen adaptations :
"At least this time it's a man," Janoth quips. Yes, it seems that Pauline swings both ways.
"The Big Clock : A Study in Fundamentals"? A study in fundaments, more like, not to mention "unsatisfying climaxes" and "gay" old times.
THE ART GALLERY
The Explosion When Both Ends Meet :
"The main theme in my work is ratio vs emotions. The struggle between head and heart, between sense and passion. The fear of going crazy, the explosion when both ends meet."
