comment

June 10, 2008

so – i finally managed to force m to leave a comment – and since there are quite some pointers i would like to represent this comment here – and add some comments of mine, too.

…btw: werner herzog has somehow become the epitomy of the selfcontrolled, ultracool director. he’s a true rockstar
e.g. when klaus kinski goes berzerk

true – very cool and selfcontrolled – and then he manages to tell us that he is the one to fear. fantastic.

the whole rant (enacted with pantoffel-puppets!) is here:

or he gets shot

or henry rollins sucks up to him

well – there would be a lot to say about henry rollins, of course. what i find fantastic is that werner herzog comes across tougher then mister rollins when he explains the “being shot at episode” – which is an interesting episode (see link above) because we get to see his somehow surprising choice of underwear. hmmm…

unfortunately i am not that familiar with werner herzog’s body of work (especially concerning his newer stuff). what i found always fascinating was the relationship between him and klaus kinski, his alter ego, his nemesis, his best fiend:

the above clip is an excerpt from that movie, presenting a short bit of his (in)famous performance of jesus christ erlöser – more information you’ll find on this website.

what is somehow odd – because it fits in this series of posts of “old stuff”, of digging out music from the past, is that an interview of klaus kinski is one of my earliest tv-memories. i remember being totally flabbergasted – finally someone who dared to be, well, normal. to tell a journalist that the question asked sucks.

i might get around one day to do something more substantial on mister kinski – for the time being have a look at youtube: there is quite a lot to see. and funny to see that old interview and realising that next to him sits manfred krug (which is a different story again…).

who are you? a homosexual – donna speaks

January 19, 2008

i would like to draw your attention to the who are you? a homosexual-post. donna taylor has been so kind to leave a comment. so i strongly advise you head over there and might even let me know your point of view.

same same but different

on the post a homosexual life i got a comment by suzie queue – thank you, suzie! since i suspect that not many of you saw it i would like to bring it to your attention here:

I gotta tell you, I always laugh when I hear those right wing idiots talk about the “Homosexual LIFESTYLE”.

I bet they think that every gay men wakes up to an alarm-COCK, brushes their teeth with a dildo-shaped toothbrush, takes a shower and shove the back-srubber up their ass…

They just can’t imagine that gay men lead ordinary lives like the rest of the world. What’s done in the bedroom between consenting adults is nobody’s business. And really, if a “Hetersexual LIFESTYLE” is defined by having sex with a woman, then that’s about 20 minutes every few days. THen when you’re not having sex, you’re JUST LIKE the gay men who are not having sex.

So what’s the difference?

first i would like to say that i want that toothbrush – do they also do electric ones of that model?

actually i don’t want to add much to this comment – it should rather be an invitation to other readers to voice their opinion. so what’s the difference?

what i would like to add is that the talk of a homosexual lifestyle in a political context usually just means that being homosexual is a choice and therefore one can also decide against being homosexual. but i am not really interested in that. what i would be interested is rather in the gay lifestyle – i call it that way to make the difference to the homosexual desire, which i do not think is a choice. but how do you express this same-sex desire in your social identity? and how much choice do you have to decide for or against a gay lifestyle? and what’s the difference to so called straight folks?

i already gave you by the material here presented a choice of answers – but now it’s time for your answers.
