For someone who didn't mind getting his cock sucked on film in the 80s I imagine nudity is a breeze.

i think that was more tame than the semi-masturbation scenes he did in same (kern films)...leather chaps, chewing gum, and sneering all the while.

For some reason whenever this comes up my reaction is "I want to see" followed closely by ". . .maybe not". And then it see-saws. Stupid brain. Basically whenever I hear that there's anything remotely uhm. . .unusual (in the sense that it's not a situation you'd usually see a musician in, not that being nude, masturbating or getting a blowjob is particularly "weird"), I get curious about it. But not curious enough to pursue it with any sort of gusto.

I like the fact that he's got White's debut album on his list. It's actually on top of my list for 2009. You can check out some of it here: http://www.myspace.com/whitebeijing

I haven't heard most of the other music on JGT's list, except for Veckatimest and Tarot Sport. Both nice but not outstanding, not on my top 10 anyway. But I will probably check out a few of the other ones on the list.

I've also got a Throbbing Gristle concert on my top list (Copenhagen). On the very top of my top list, actually, it was absolutely outstanding.

But I didn't perform naked. Sorry. Will try harder this year.  :-[ ;D

One of my favorite things ever. I love a lot of things that make me extremely uncomfortable and amused, simultaneously.

So many good films on that Kern Hardcore disc. The one with all the self-mutilation is horrific and mesmerizing. Oh! And the one with the repeated: "The number you have dialed, 6-6-6-6-6-6-6 has been disconnected. . . "

I gave a presentation on Kern and the Cinema of Transgression as part of my film degree. I think I scared off a few fellow classmates but got 70% so wasn't all bad. Also had a good chat with UK film reviewer Mark Kermode about The Exorcist and Charles Manson's influence on its success.

...when JGT did his MTV Europe Alternative Nation co-hosting gig, the host brought up the Kern films, saying something like "you get to see a LOT of Foetus" to which Jim replied "I've got 12 inches but I don't use it as a rule."  clever boy.  i uploaded that MTV clip to youtube a while back but it was sniffed out and deleted pretty quick...

I find it interesting that his musical tastes aren't anything near the "industrial"/noise sound he's most famous for (HOLE, NAIL, THAW...).

Checked out some of the albums listed, and glad I did--Whales And Cops' Great Bouncing Icebergs is pretty nifty.
