Go! Push Pops





The Push Pops are a radical, transnational queer feminist artist collective. Geared toward engendering ‘Embodied Feminism,’ the collective is primarily concerned with the expenditure and conservation of the self in relation to the Other. Employing the female body – that which is bound to a cross-cultural language of desire, signification and power – in tactical, ideological strategy, the Push Pops utilize gesture, exclamation and popular idiom to embody a new and discursive physicality. Neo-Dada, Fluxist and Feminist, their performance work posits the body as a danger to the operation of reason and male economy of lack. A wild leap, an elusive slogan, a paroxysm of the flesh – The Push Pops reinscribe the body through participatory ritual, spontaneous performance and interactive multi-media installation.


There's as much of this as you can stand on YouTube. Or at their home page.

Caution: lots of patriarchy-demolishing swears in the second video.

Trailer is safe for work. Whole film assuredly not.

Gorf



Is it music? Is it video art? Is it both? Is it neither?

I'm going with the last statement.

Maestro Subgum







Which would you do first, to avoid experiencing this "music?" Puncture your eardrums, or gouge out your eyes? It's a tough call.

The Mexican Batwoman

a fascinating and practically seamless experiment in film genre, splicing Sixties Batmania to the Masked Mexican film... Batwoman stars Maura Monti, the tall gorgeous actress of Italian descent who featured in a phenomenal thirty five films in her four year film career before she disappeared. Usually playing in tandem with other actresses, or second-billed to wrestling superstars Santo and Blue Demon, her chance to strut her costumed stuff came in 1967 with the lead role in La Mujer Murcielago, or The Mexican Batwoman.

Eurovision 1971




Eurovision 2013 is now decided, so it's time for us to make fun of another past winner.

Just remember: the contest ain't over till the fat Severine sings.

Extra points for finding four clones of John Travolta, circa Saturday Night Fever, as her backup singers.
