Piper Laurie Day





'The first thing I think of when I think of Piper Laurie is ‘Movie Star’. This label is perhaps a bit inaccurate when considering her expansive body of work over seven decades, that stretches across nearly as many artistic mediums – acting in film, television, theater; sculpting, painting and now, with the release of her memoir, Learning to Live Out Loud, writing. When it comes to contemporary acting, however, distinct flashes of Laurie’s style can be glimpsed, albeit fleetingly, in the performance styles of starlets such as Carey Mulligan and Michelle Williams—women who are striking, intellectual, maybe a bit bruised, maybe a bit tough – tremulous gamines with hearts of steel. Piper Laurie began doing that in the 1950s as a contract player working with stalwarts like Douglas Sirk, and continued refining this type into the1960s with her iconic turn as Sarah in The Hustler (1961).

'Known largely now for its stinging treatment of pool shark culture and the cool, The Hustler shined a spotlight on the hunky king of that world, Fast Eddie Felson (played of course by a never-hotter Paul Newman). Upon closer inspection, there is such an edgy nastiness to the film that makes its purposeful nihilism still feel shocking. Shocking not because of the frank dissection of its characters’ narcissistic, deliberately hurtful behavior and desperation (though those are incredible moments), but instead for how shockingly tough, scrappy and new the punched-in-the-guts emotional impact feels every time Laurie appears on screen to temper the overall machismo with her patented brand of tough cookie feminine energy. There’s real danger in this film, a thrilling sense of risk-taking.

'The Hustler still feels that way more than fifty years later. Fresh. Exciting. Deadly. The film works largely thanks to Laurie’s contribution to the incredible ensemble that includes not only Newman but also towering greats George C. Scott and Jackie Gleason. The doomed, tragic romance between Laurie’s Sarah and Fast Eddie grounded The Hustler in a stark and bitter reality that hadn’t been depicted for the screen previously. After being nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award for her work in the film, Laurie soon found that Hollywood was an inhospitable place for women who didn’t necessarily fit into just one mold as an artist.

'Rather than take work that wasn’t up to snuff, Laurie did something that might have been considered, again, a little shocking: she stopped playing the leading lady (or, in her words “perky starlet”) and promptly left movies for work on her own terms. The result was a daring collection of female characters who were not only close to the edge, but some who, in fact, went over that edge a long time ago. Colorful, memorable roles in films like Carrie (1976, for which she makes our Essential Performances list), Children of a Lesser God (1986) and Twin Peaks (1990) solidified her reputation as a singular talent. When one digs a bit deeper into her body of work, into films like the 1979 Australian drama Tim opposite Mel Gibson or the Truman Capote-inspired realms of deeply-Southern magical realism in The Grass Harp (1995), the breadth of her characterizations is impressive, there is always a deliberateness to her portrayals, and each is impeccably constructed and thoughtful.

'Female movie stars of today may possess the basic, bare minimum tenets of Piper Laurie’s blazingly original screen persona, but very few can claim the kind of honed, strong chops she can. They just don’t make them like this anymore, as the saying goes. However, as her revealing biography points out, a thirst for learning and a constant search for new ways of creatively expressing oneself can take a performer to spectacular heights, and she done both opposite some of the greatest artists ever to work, counting Maureen Stapleton, Jean Simmons, Kim Stanley, David Lynch, Douglas Sirk , Paul Newman, George C. Scott, Sissy Spacek and Brian De Palma amongst her closest collaborators. She no doubt also taught them a thing or two as well, which means the future is indeed bright for the Carey Mulligans and Michelle Williamses of the world after all.' -- Matt Mazur

Interview
from Pop Matters




Your career began at a pivotal time in cinema history when the way movies were being made was quickly changing. What were your initial ambitions?

Piper Laurie: Well, I wanted to be a really good actress and I had planned on going to New York to work in the theater. I screen-tested before, several times, and they failed them. So I was sort of surprised when Universal decided to exercise the test option contract after the screen test that I made with Rock Hudson. It was so flattering, that they wanted me, and that they were going to pay me for doing what I loved to do. I got trapped into something that I wasn’t expecting. I knew nothing about the kind of movies that Universal made at that time. I was forced to lower my standards. I didn’t really lower my standards, it was just agony I must say, to have to play the parts in the movies that they gave me. On one hand I was grateful that I was getting a name, which I later had to live down, but it was certainly not what I had aspired to.

Do you ever revisit those movies, like the ones you did with Douglas Sirk?

PL: No, I haven’t seen them for years. I don’t think I ever saw any of them more than once. You know, modern people enjoyed them…

The Hustler is such a favorite of mine and I’ve recently revisited it. Talk about a movie that stands the test of time… when you were constructing your character for this film, what about playing Sarah was most intriguing to you?

PL: Well, I think not necessarily playing her, but the whole project: the meticulous, vibrant script and the opportunity to work with Robert Rossen and to play opposite the actors that were starring in it. The overall project was really the appeal, not necessarily her part. Those sad creatures require almost to dredge up a lot of sadness in one’s life and that’s never fun.

Speaking of great ensembles, I wish I could have seen you do The Glass Menagerie with Pat Hingle and Maureen Stapleton, I’m such a fan of that play and of Tennessee Williams.

PL: It was really a lovely production! That’s what I’ve been told by enough people so I believe it! (laughing)

What were the challenges of performing this demanding role for the stage? Did you for example take to the language naturally?

PL: You put it very well. I think most actors respond to his language. That’s why so many of us like to work on his material. I’d worked on a lot of things, plays, in my acting classes before I even went to Universal and became a professional actor. Tennessee Williams was a very important person to me. I got to meet him and know him a little bit while we were rehearsing and during the play and he came to many of the performances. The Tennessee Williams one-act play, This Property Is Condemned, was made into a movie that had nothing to do with the play, it was a completely different story. It was basically a two-character play, the main character was mainly a monologue, a 14-year-old girl. I played the main character, I worked on that in my acting class, and used it as an audition piece when I went to Universal.

They were going to give me three minutes, they were going to start the play, and I expected them to stop me, but they didn’t and I ended up doing the whole 25-minute play. And they signed me, and I made a screen test, and they put me into junk. Anyway…. Tennessee Williams is a fabulous part of my life and actually I just came back from the Tennessee Williams Literary Festival in New Orleans where I was on a number of the panels and did a reading, the Katharine Hepburn role [from Suddenly, Last Summer] from when she first appears in the movie. There was a whole afternoon devoted to Williams.

I’m so interested the women you mention in your book. Maureen, Kim Stanley, Jean Simmons, and Estelle Parsons. How did your associations with these talented women impact you?

PL: Greatly (laughing). Maureen was just… so human and tortured and dear and intelligent. Brilliant. As gifted as she was, that’s how intelligent she was as well. We spent a lot of time together while doing the play and then afterwards as well. She was a generous human person, who had a hard time with life and made a lot of bad choices like a lot of actors do. But I loved her very much, she was a wonderful person.

It is striking just how prescient Carrie is in its depiction of bullying and teenage horror. I have to ask – what are your thoughts on the planned remake and Julianne Moore tackling Margaret White?

PL: Oh, you know, I hope that they have fun like we did! Or like I did anyway. I wish them well and I know that they did another version of it on stage recently, and I did get to see the first of the previews. They had a different take on the story, and they had every right to. I loved our movie, our version of it, because I think that Brian De Palma brought a joyful sensibility to it, there was all that freshness. Even though it was about a lot of misery, there was still joy in all of those young people, in all the characters. There was flamboyance about Brian De Palma’s work, I think. I know he certainly made me feel comfortable. I think the people involved with the new version will do their own take on it and I wish them well.

I had a chance to research some of your filmography that I hadn’t seen previously and was so impressed with some of the more underrated titles. Particularly I loved watching Tim, with Mel Gibson, which had so many great observations about gender, age and atypical relationships. In the book you touch on working with Mel, but I was so fascinated with your character, she seemed so much different from anything else you had done until that point. What did you hope to express through Mary, your character in Tim?

PL: You know, I don’t really approach a part with what I want to express, I think my ambition during filming is to respect the material, to fulfill the nature of the character as written. I don’t feel I can take charge and be the playwright. I just saw her as a very decent woman, and a generous one. I don’t really think I had a motive to be a certain kind of person, I just wanted to fulfill the story.

What was the personal significance to you of being a woman of Jewish descent playing a Nazi like Magda Goebbels with Anthony Hopkins as Hitler in The Bunker?

PL: It was very interesting to do the research on Hitler, Goebbels and his beautiful wife, who I was playing. I had a knot in my stomach the whole time I was reading. I had, even as a child, a violent response to Hitler as, I suppose you can call him a ‘human being’, though I really don’t think he deserved that title. He was alive at one point, he was a person, but I just had nightmares about him when I was a little girl. It was kind of treacherous getting into this material and trying to empathize with people who were very close to him. Magda Goebbels was very close. He trusted her. She was the only person who could cook something for him and he wouldn’t demand a taster to see if it was safe to eat. So I approached it from another’s point of view and tried to imagine her as being a mother, a human and the feelings that she probably had about her children and being in that underground place that they had at the end.

I wanted to ask you about film criticism since you were married to one of the great film critics, Joe Morgenstern, and also knew Pauline Kael. What changes have you observed in film criticism throughout your career?

PL: For a long time, for many years, there were very few critics, most people who wrote about movies were called ‘reviewers.’ I suppose they still exist, they were the people who would spoil the movie by telling the story. It had no values at all [talking] about performance. It was just all very superficial. I think there are a lot of real critics now, I guess that’s good (laughing). I don’t like reading reviews myself about a movie I’m going to be seeing. I like reading the ones I respect after I see the movie, that’s really fun to do.

What did playing Catherine on Twin Peaks, and her Japanese businessman disguise Mr Tojamura, allow you to do as a performer that you’d never done before?

PL: I didn’t expect it. When I was little girl, I used to get into elaborate disguises. I remember there was an old folks home across the street, in this huge Victorian house, and the people would always sit out on the porch and rock or spend the afternoon. With the help of my sister, I got into the disguise of an old lady, powdered my hair, bent my body over, and put on some old clothes and clunky shoes. I actually had a following there! (laughing) My sister and some of the kids in the neighborhood thought ‘this is pretty bizarre and interesting!’ (laughing) I pretended to be an old lady and of course all of the old folks knew that it was a kid doing this and they went along with it, but I remember there was one man who tied my shoelace for me! I found such joy in being able to change who I was. It was fun, it’s why I loved Halloween, because we could wear costumes. So, to be handed the opportunity by David Lynch, to do that in the show, was pure heaven!

You’ve been awarded three career Oscar nominations – what did these Oscar nominations mean to you when you were first nominated and how did your perception change as you collected other awards and nominations?

PL: Well, the first Oscar nomination for The Hustler was meaningless to me. Because I didn’t have the perspective of the movie, I was too subjective when I viewed it. It wasn’t what I had expected. When I’d see a scene, I’d remember that my shoe was too tight or that we were having difficulty or had to shoot it a lot of times. You know, I just remembered all of the things we’d experienced on the set, rather than looking at it objectively as the story was going. I thought it was bullshit, frankly, that I had been nominated and I just didn’t believe in it. I didn’t even go out to California for the ceremony. I watched it on a little set with my mother-in-law and my husband. Then, later as I started getting nominations, I was a little more relaxed about myself, I was able to enjoy the fun and that my peers thought I had done a good job. I never really enjoyed going. I pretended I was enjoying going to the ceremonies, but it’s always difficult.

What about when you win and you have to give speeches?

PL: I’ve won things a few times. Once I won my Emmy, when I wasn’t there, not because I didn’t want to go but because I was doing a play somewhere. James Woods accepted for me and that was fun. The only other time I was present and actually won was the Golden Globe for Twin Peaks and that was hell, I’ll be honest with you! (laughing) When I heard my name, I really didn’t expect to hear it. I didn’t even bother to tidy up before the broadcast started. It took forever before I got to the podium, I don’t even know what I said. It was stupid, I’m sure! (laughing)

______________
Douglas Sirk Has Anybody Seen My Gal (1952)
'The reason why Has Anybody Seen My Gal is enjoyable, even now over 60 years after it was made is because of Charles Coburn. Coburn was such a great comedic actor that even when he was playing a grouch he was likeable and so from the minute we meet Samuel Fulton, berating his staff as he dictates his Will you just smile because Coburn simply makes him fun. And it is the same throughout, be it a knowing look, his attempts to make soda-pops or the way he treats the Blaisdell's home like his own without a care in the world he just makes you smile. As such whilst there are entertaining performances from Larry Gates, Lynn Bari as well as Piper Laurie and Rock Hudson it is Coburn who is the star and who makes it worth watching. Although for sheer cuteness Gigi Perreau as young Roberta deserves a mention because she maybe a childhood cliche but she is fun especially as she befriends Fulton.' -- The Movie Scene

Rudolph Maté The Mississippi Gambler (1953)
'1953's The Mississippi Gambler was the third Universal Studios film to bear this title--though with a different plot each time. Tyrone Power plays an all-around adventurer who cuts quite a swath through antebellum New Orleans. In between scenes of gambling, fist-fighting and swordplay, Power woos Piper Laurie, who chooses to marry wealthy Ron Randell; in turn, Power is wooed by Julie Adams, whose ardor is not reciprocated. The climax finds Power in a card table showdown with Ms. Laurie's ill-tempered brother John Baer. Mississippi Gambler is consistently good to look at, even when the storyline threatens to snap under the pressure.' -- collaged

Edward Buzzell Ain't Misbehavin' (1955)
'Up and coming hopefuls in the film arts have to cut their milk teeth somewhere, and Ain't Misbehavin' is the type of zwieback on which they chew. Yesterday at the Palace Piper Laurie and Rory Calhoun could be seen industriously learning their trade in the Universal-International color musical. The story line of rich young man and poor chorus line hoofer, set atop San Francisco's Nob Hill, flits frantically about the place and never really goes anywhere. Miss Laurie sings and dances four alleged "production" numbers, and she's in there batting every minute. It's a forced, joyless thing that director Edward Buzzell has wrought. All surface and no distinction. The music is tired and the dances are flaccid repetitions of hundreds of other movie dances. But when the summer nights afflict you like wet wool, and the theatres beckon with their super-cooled zephyrs, Ain't Misbehavin' will fill the double bill. At worst it's a soporific.' -- NY Times

_______________
Robert Rossen The Hustler (1961)
'I wanted to do The Hustler before I had even gotten to the part in the script where my character came in. The words painted a picture that was so vivid in my imagination. It drew me in so quickly and completely, as the movie does. I didn’t have that in my mind while I was acting. I was very subjective in my relationship with Paul [Newman], so I had no idea where the camera was or what was going on. When I saw the finished movie, it was so different from what I imagined the first time I read the script that I was shocked and I hated the movie. It took me years before I could see it and realize how really wonderful it was.' -- Piper Laurie

________________
Brian De Palma Carrie (1976)
'For anyone unfortunate enough to have caught Carrie as a child, you might remember Piper Laurie from every fucking nightmare you’ve ever had. In a film crowded with macabre images—a blood-soaked Sissy Spacek and a young John Travolta among them—Laurie manages to be the most singularly terrifying thing on the screen. One moment she’s seemingly calm and collected, and the next she’s grinning maniacally as she stalks her daughter with a kitchen knife. And she does it all in the name of God. Laurie’s performance just might be the scariest thing to come out of Christianity since Mormon underwear. But what’s even more startling about Laurie’s performance is how surprisingly well it has aged. Despite its revered status, Carrie as a whole doesn’t hold up very well. Its split-screen climax is about as dated as “Disco Duck.” But Laurie’s looney-tunes Margaret White remains terrifying, a diabolical mix of high camp and classic horror. Look at those crazy eyes and the way she seems to float down the hallway, her nightgown blowing ethereally as if by being sent aflutter by the breath of demons. She isn’t just the epitome of the warped righteousness of fundamentalism. She’s one of the best monsters ever committed to film.' -- Willamette Week

Curtis Harrington Ruby (1977)
'RUBY (1977) is not one Curtis Harrington’s better films, but it was his biggest moneymaker. In fact, it was the most successful American indie ever until the following year’s HALLOWEEN. The presence of veteran actress Piper Laurie, on the comeback trail after playing the demented mother of CARRIE, was a definite factor in its success. Curtis Harrington’s films were characterized by darkly atmospheric settings and dreamlike horror. Those things are in scant evidence on RUBY, which tends to rely on cheap shocks to achieve its effects--blood emitting from a vending machine, a seeping bullet wound appearing in Ruby’s daughter’s forehead--along with a seriously tacky PSYCHO-inspired score. Plus it cribs shamelessly from THE EXORCIST in its later scenes, as Ruby’s child becomes possessed and exhibits a full spectrum of Linda Blair-isms. The film is, however, trashily enjoyable. Gorehounds will get a kick out of all the exploitive bloodletting, and Piper Laurie gives a memorably histrionic performance as the title character. As for the loony ending, it would be better if it weren’t so abrupt; apparently Harrington’s original cut had a more elaborate fade-out that was jettisoned by producers.' -- fright.com

________________
Michael Pate Tim (1979)
'The opening scenes of Tim are so indifferently shot and so sitcom-bright that I realized with a start that I'd never really seen Australia or Australian cinema look this way. I didn't know Tim's premise, just that the film debuted Down Under about three months after the first Mad Max did in 1979, rocketing Mel Gibson to superfame, and earning him the AFI award for this performance. Based on the Disney Channel palette and the juvenile scoring, all pan flutes and comic slide-whistles for no particular reason, I got ready to Learn Something About Life, the way you do in those movies where some girl called Christy or Rebecca or Anne stands around in tall-grass or in front of church-shaped schoolhouses, sporting a lot of long-sleeved gingham and wearing her goodness like sunblock, right there on the outside. Piper Laurie is Mary Horton, the single, middle-aged, school-marmish woman who sees Tim finishing up some home-repair project for her next-door neighbor and hires him to do some odd jobs for her. With everything in place, including a totally de-sexed teacher-confidant, we settle in for a less pastoral Mel of Avonlea, or some life-affirming combination of Charly and Gibson's own directorial debut, The Man without a Face. Laurie plays Mary is a self-aware chicken-hawk who thinks she needs to play the innocent-mentor angle and ride it out patiently in order to get what she wants.' -- Nick's Flick Picks

Lee Philips Mae West (1982)
'The viewer is advised at the outset that the script, written by E. Arthur Kean, is ''based on events in the life of the legendary Mae West.'' Legend, of course, doesn't necessarily have anything to do with truth. In this case, certain autobiographical facts are embellished with several of Miss West's more famous comments about life and sex (''When I'm good, I'm very good; when I'm bad, I'm better''), some of them taken out of their original performance context and delivered as passing conversation. In the process, the woman behind the public image emerges as a trailblazing feminist and a brave denouncer of censorship. Her detractors, however, are offered a measure of comfort in the depiction of her private love life as a mess. The wicked, presumably, will still be punished. Her Mama is played with saintly reserve by Piper Laurie.' -- NY Times

Walter Murch Return to Oz (1985)
'A tween-aged Fairuza Balk plays Dorothy, whose insistence on recounting her adventures following her return from Oz has Aunt Em (Piper Laurie) and Uncle Henry (Matt Clark) convinced that she must be experiencing delusional depression. They nearly bankrupt themselves (in a town already so broke that it can’t afford a flagpole, no less) in order for Dorothy to see a psychiatrist. Dr. Worley (Nicol Williamson) is less interested in her mental health than in ensuring that Dorothy’s perceived problems stop bothering the adults around her, though. He is obsessed with what he perceives to be progress, declaring that the 20th century (the film is set in 1900) will be “a century of electricity.” During a storm, this relentless push for modernity quite literally backfires: The lights go out, and Dorothy is finally able to hear the screams of discarded patients in the absence of the ominously cheerful hum of electricity. With the help of a mysterious young girl, she escapes down a stream and miraculously wakes up in Oz.' -- City Paper

David Lynch Twin Peaks (1990-1991)
'After we wrapped up the first season, David called me at home and said, in his Jimmy Stewart drawl, “Rosie, I want you to give some thought to the next season. Your character was last seen at the fire in the sawmill. We don’t know whether Catherine escaped or not. When we come back, I want the audience to think you died in the fire. Your husband, Jack Nance, will think you’re dead. Everyone will think you’re dead, and we’ll take your name off the credits of the show.” It crossed my mind for a millisecond that this was David’s original way of telling me I was being fired. But he continued, “Now, Rosie, this is the part I want you to think about. You will return in some sort of disguise, as a man, and you’ll spy on the town and create trouble for everyone -your husband, your lover, everyone. You should probably be a businessman. I want you to decide what kind of businessman you would like to be. Maybe a Frenchman or a Mexican. Think about it for a while and let me know.” I was so enchanted with the open possibilities and the power of being able to choose my part. (…) I decided I’d be a Japanese businessman because I thought it would be less predictable. I was so filled with excitement and laughter: this was joyful children’s play. There was no argument from David when I told him my choice, no attempt to influence me. He simply accepted it. Then came the hard part. David wished me to keep it a secret from the entire cast and crew. Not even my agent or my family was to know. That was important to him. I wasn’t to tell a soul. There was so much preparation involved in pulling off the subterfuge. There were secret makeup and wardrobe tests at a laboratory in the Valley. Paula Shimatsu-u, who was Mark Frost’s assistant and one of the few people who knew, was helpful in making tape recordings of Japanese friends reciting my lines. I practicec imitating them while driving to and from work. I had assumed that, of course, the placement of my voice would be electronically altered, but they had given it no thought and were not prepared on the morning of my first scene. I am trained to keep going no matter what, and when I realized I was on my own, I ended up going to a place in my chest and throat to get that appropriate guttural sound. It turned out to be painful to sustainm, and I sipped liquids constantly between takes. I shall never do that again for fear of injuring my voice permanently.' -- Piper Laurie

'A young woman staying as a guest in a Napa Valley farmhouse becomes trapped in a fight for survival with a self-proclaimed homicidal adventurer, and races to save his next intended victim. Teleplay by Stephen Tolkin based on the novel by Dean Koontz. Directed by Yves Simoneau. Starring Molly Parker, John C. McGinley and Piper Laurie. TV so quality isn't great, but it's decent and I don't think this was ever released on video or dvd. Pretty intense at times with fine acting, in particular by John C. McGinley. I haven't read the book so I can't vouch for how close this is to the Dean Koontz's original story.' -- IMDb

Robert Rodriguez The Faculty (1998)
'Robert Rodriguez is a vastly fun director. He is always very kinetic and edits his own films. There is no such thing as a slow-paced Rodriguez film. He knows how to make the most out of a shoestring budget and has a good eye for gore effects. Rodriguez gets fun (not good but fun) performances from everyone including Bebe Neuwirth and Piper Laurie as other faculty members. While Rodriguez normally writes, edits, and directs, here he wisely turns the writing chores over to Kevin Williamson. Rodriguez writes efficiently but Williamson really knows how to write young people. He throws in the usual pop culture references including a hilarious one about Invasion of the Body Snatchers ripping off Heinlein’s The Puppet Masters (which it did). The Faculty is essentially the same story.' -- collaged

______________
Spencer Susser Hesher (2010)
'Hesher is a violent, uncontrollable wild man who might easily hail from Borneo, but in time the script is hell-bent on revealing a sensitivity to the plight of others that is as bracing as electro-shock therapy. Natalie Portman makes an unlucky cameo appearance as a penniless supermarket cashier named Nicole who becomes T.J.’s only friend when she rescues him from a sadistic bully. Hesher wrecks everyone’s trust by throwing Nicole into bed (she likes tattoos) but redeems himself by showing up at a funeral stoned and dragging the corpse away on a motorbike. Don’t ask. The whole thing seems to have been directed by long-distance cell phone and edited with a rotary jigsaw. Mr. Gordon-Levitt, in the title role, never makes the lobotomized Hesher a coherent character. The only thing he doesn’t set fire to is the negative. The kid who plays T.J. looks like a miniature version of the already miniature Justin Bieber. Only the great Piper Laurie delivers dollar value. Otherwise, Hesher is to movies what graffiti is to a rotting fence.' -- New York Observer

Luckily, it's not the last record store, but it's certainly in the top tier of the ones in the running for the best one standing. I forgot about 'What's My Shoe Size', ha ha. Ha ha about the show, not about my forgetting. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi. I saw that about the Magical Journey. If I had time, I'd add it into my imminent Magic Winterland post. My favorite quote from the MJ stuff I found: 'It turns out the ‘journey’ is not an extensive train ride through acres of wooded wonderland but, in fact, a couple of weak elf sketches, a lot of hanging around in the cold, and a two-minute wet-bottomed rumble through a very pretty wood with cars roaring past on a nearby road. There is no music on the train, so the elf at the back sings a couple of verses of Jingle Bells and then peters out when the driver elf refuses to join in. But small mercies — the train works and Freddy loves it. Last week it had to be pushed up a hill by a group of elves after one reckless elf drove into a tree, then a trailer and then, apparently, ran out of petrol.' But, yes, the employees got fucked. The quiet heroes. ** Tosh Berman, Me too. I've spent many an hour with 'What's in My Bag' while daydreaming about what records I'd put in mine were I aware that I was about to get my bag searched on camera. I'm really looking forward to taking a record store tour the next time I hit LA. There's a good one, name escaping me, just a few blocks from my LA pad on Hillhurst. I'm sure you know it. ** Sypha, Those King homilies are just intolerable. That assessment of his writing seems pretty spot on from my limit experience, but the guy is at least a minor genius when it comes to thinking up and ladling out horror tropes. ** Kier, Hi, buddy boy! Yeah, I don't even really like sweet drinks that aren't alcoholic. I've hated Coke, Pepsi, 7-Up, Mountain Dew, Orangina, etc., etc. since I was about five years old. I like water. I'm old fashioned. I'll skip that movie, yes. I am curious about 'Meth Head' from the trailer. I saw 'Solarbabies', yikes, yeah, kind of sort of really fun. I guess it's good that your psych wants you to be prepared for the very worst, unlikely case scenario, and hopefully that's all that's going on there. 'Point Break', right. Keanu. My day ended up being an off-day re: the editing. My last for a while. Which isn't to say I wasn't doing film stuff a lot, like crossing town to FedEx to send the DVD of the three rough/finished scenes to our producers, who will have them in hand in the next couple of hours whereupon we'll see what they think. Stressful. As I may have mentioned already, I don't think the film we're making is the film they have been expecting. Not that we've misled them at all. It's just that, knowing their tastes and what they usually produce, our film is a lot more artful and serious. Hopefully, they'll like that about it, but you never know. Anyway, nervous. So, I did that. Then I tried to catch up on stuff I have to do and am way behind on. I did the revisions on the theater piece script. I made 1 1/2 blog posts. I creased my huge backlog of unanswered emails. I went out at one point to hang with yesterday's guest-host Jonathan Mayhew because he's about to head off to Norway for the holidays. We had coffee, book shopped, blabbed, strolled. It was nice. Then I came back and did some work and work-ish stuff, ate pasta, uh, ... slept. Back to the editing room today. What was the shape and character of your today? ** Keaton, Man, The North Pole has never seem more real or more enticing as a tourist destination than it is in your hands. I haven't been over to Grand Boulevard this Xmas yet. I got close yesterday 'cos Fed Ex is on Blvd. Haussmann. I need to get over there. It's a short walk, and I'm definitely in sore need of some Hard Rock nachos. ** Misanthrope, Hi, G. Ha ha, no I was kidding about Le Bron. I knew he plays basketball. I knew he's a huge deal in the sport. I even knew that he touched princess ... sorry, Duchess What's-her-butt. I've just never seen him play and would never recognize him in a million years if he was in my face. Who's the one of the four that he's not better than? Not that the answer will mean much to me. I know who all those guys are, and I've actually seen Kobe play with my naked eyes a few times. They're shoes that are designed such that they can be neatly and easily buried to the heel in bottompassif's ass. ** Steevee, Cool, I'll try that Danny Brown next chance I get. I saw giant posters in the metro for 'Eastern Boys' maybe a month ago, so I suspect it has come and gone. Very striking posters. Even though I've been over quite a while, it still amazes me to see a movie like that one advertised everywhere with the same populist outreach and giant-sized posters as blockbusters 'The Hobbit', etc. But that's Paris. Very good question about what France will do re: 'The Interview' now. I guess we'll know before it opens here, whenever that is. My guess is that they'll release it as usual, but who knows. ** Rewritedept, Hi. It must be interesting and cool to have that '60s radio music available to absorb without all the context that saddles it for those of us who grew up with it as the contemporaneous soundtrack. Well, your goal for a partner seems doable. I mean it doesn't have anything too far fetched about it. It's all luck, accident, fate, etc, that stuff. Cool that you get to see Sleater-Kinney. I wonder if they'll tour here. I wonder if they're beloved over here. I have no idea. The Berlinale is the Berlin Film Festival. My week's good. I'm glad you're getting used to the unipolar depression if that's your only option. ** Hyemin kim, Hi. I saw your email. I'll try to send you the interview today. I have to track it down. Honestly, I don't know why I was compelled by Robert Piest. I think in the interview I try to figure that out slightly, but, with virtually everything that fascinates me and that I end up writing about, I don't know why, and that's why I write about those things so I can try to figure out why in the process. And I usually never do.  ** Thomas Moronic, Hi, T. Get through your last three days. Are you doing Xmas-y things for the kids in these last days? I would guess? It will be great to see you more! ** Jonathan, Hey! Awesomeness to get to see you yesterday, and thank you so much again for the Xmas treats, edible and audible! Yay that you have an idea for the thing! If you can, you-know-who will be very happy, as will I, duh! I haven't pulled the CD out of its shrink-wrap yet, but I'll make sure my ears are prepared and careful when I spin it, just in case. Have the jolliest holidays ever, and I mean ever! ** Okay. For some reason, the blog has been on a cult character actor worshipping kick of late, and here's a new extension of that phase starring the glorious Piper Laurie. Enjoy, I would think? See you tomorrow.

Jonathan Mayhew presents ... What's in Your Bag?


Amoeba Records is the place of my dreams.
If I ever get to one, I’ll probably never leave.
It is my dream to be one day asked, what’s in my bag?
Until then I’ll settle for watching these.

Here are some of my favs





















































































*

p.s. Hey. Today the master of visual arts and d.l. and my current crosstown neighbor here in Paris i.e. Mr. Jonathan Mayhew goes record bag hunting via the greatest record store in the world, and you will have fun, guaranteed, and more fun the more you click, so have at it. Thank you, Jonathan! ** Hyemin kim, Hi. Oh, wow, that's a complicated question. Um, I don't think I can answer you with sufficient breadth here in the p.s., especially when I'm having to slightly hurry the p.s. in order to get back to my editing duties. I know I talk about Robert Piest in the interview in the book 'Gone'. Do you have that book, I forget? If not, I can try to find the doc of the interview and send it to you by email? Let me know. My apologies, but it's an important question, I guess, and too large a one for me to answer sufficiently right here. Thank you for asking. ** Etc etc etc, Hi. A trip to Orange County almost qualifies as nuclear Xmas plans? Ha ha, no, I wish I could be in So. Cal. for the event. Well, semi-wish. To see the, yes, Marjorie Cameron show among other things. No, I'm sorry, I haven't had any chance to look at what you sent, and, honestly, I'm pretty positive I won't be able to for the next while. I am literally co-editing our film 10 to 11 hours every day with extremely rare exceptions, and I'm barely even able to keep up with the blog and basic other things in my life at the moment. I just have no time and very little brain availability. I can try to read your stuff over the few days at Xmas when I won't be editing, if I can. I apologize. Paris makes really sure you know it's Xmas every time you're out walking anywhere, and they do a very good job it, so it's def. very seasonal here. Nice. ** David Ehrenstein, Maybe because ... huh, you're right, I can't think if a rational reason why he would have done that. Thanks for your excitement about our movie. Me too! It's pretty damned great, at least so far, maybe. We'll find out if our producers agree with that assessment very quickly now. It certainly not the film they've been expecting, but we're hoping the surprise works in our favor because, trust me, it's a whole lot better than what they've been expecting. ** Kier, Hello, Mr, Dullea! I know, that was such a good line, right? I'm envious. Wow, those are completely stunning Oslo photos! Everyone, put your finger/cursor on this word, which was actually two words, and go look at some very beautiful, very not postcard-like -- well, I mean they're like the postcards of one's dreams only -- b&w photos of Oslo by the majestic Kier! Stunning, pal! Yeah, very sweet drinks, yuck. Especially very sweet alcoholic drinks. Yuck. Is that just me? I do like egg nog, though. Oh, well. I'm glad you got a day off. You keep finding these Lukas movies that I've never heard of before. I'm turning into bad fan of his, which is inadvertent and sad. He jerks off in it? Like ... for real? Your 2012 obsession drawings are great, and gosh, thanks for doing one re: me (blush). Are you still fascinated by Lindsay Lohan? My day, like every day of mine recently, was editing-impacted and went very well. This one maybe especially well. We finished Scene 2! Well, a rough cut. There's still a bunch of work to do on it, but we made a version good enough to show our producers. That was exciting! And also in the morning we received the finished score for Scene 3 and laid it out under the current edit of the scene, and it's perfect and everything we had hoped for. So that was very exciting too. So today we're FedExing our producers rough cuts of the first three scenes on DVD, and, giant gulp re: what they'll think because, obviously, if they don't like the scenes, the future will be messy, but at least we're super happy. That was most of the day, but I squeezed in a meeting with Gisele in the morning to talk about and work on the new theater piece. She gave me corrections to make in the script, and I have to find time to do the corrections today because the translator -- it needs to be translated into German for the next rehearsal period because the performers are German and they'll be learning it in German first and then eventually in English -- so today will be a packed one. I managed to do a little conferring/organizing about the eBook-like novel-like novel, and we have a release date, and I'll announce it soon. That was my day in a nutshell. How, pray tell, was Tuesday, Kierster? ** Steevee, Hi. As an inconsequential side note, when I typed Steevee a moment ago it was the first in our history together on this blog that Blogger didn't automatically spell-correct it to Steve. The first time. It finally learned. Awkward/funny story. of yours  I like Kendrick Lamar, of course, yes. I heard a little Danny Brown, but it didn't grab me. You recommend that I investigate him? Oh, actually, in one of my few free periods of minutes yesterday, I looked up the films on your list, so now I have a better sense. It was only a couple that I didn't know of or remember: 'What Now? Remind Me' and 'The King of Escape'. ** Bill, Hi. Oh, well, then I guess I'll go ahead and admit that I am actif_cho, so, yes, been there, done that. His eyes looked perfectly okay to me, but then I only glimpsed them for a second as the leather hood was descending. Do I need to say I'm kidding? If so, kidding. ** Marilyn Roxie, Hi, Marilyn! I hope you're doing really great! He sounds fascinating and complicated and ultimately like way too much. I'm an idealist, and I can only take so much misanthropy and jadedness before I get really bored and irritated. But I can totally see how that stuff in combo with great beauty would very compelling and fascinating. Huh. Very interesting. Thank you about the film. Me too! Love, me. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, Ben! ** Keaton, I've spent the great majority of my life avoiding having work that I would have to go to, so I'm big upping your idea to stay seated. I'm sure you can write a great novel too. I mean, duh. Glad you liked the escorts. Yeah, I managed to find a couple of emos with good profile text this month. Score. ** Sypha, Are there people who really love King's bumpkin talk? There must be, right? Or does every single reader he has grit their teeth and merely tolerate that. I wonder. No problem on the shout-out. I'll go check it out too. Everyone, here's Sypha with something it would be really great of you to check out and contribute to if you can. Listen up: 'Oh, Dennis, if you could do me a favor and give a shout-out for my friend Brendan? He's this really talented younger guy I'm friends with who's trying to raise money on indiegogo to buy a computer to help him jumpstart his art career. Anyway, here's the link. If anyone could help him out even a little bit, I'm sure he'd be very grateful. Thanks!' ** Misanthrope, It happened. My decree has been issued. The case is closed. Sweet that LPS is into exercising in a formal context. Who's LeBron? Wait, I know that name. Sports. Nice of you to get him those shoes with that presumably sports guy's endorsement on them. Can you hook me up with some bottompassif shoes? ** Kyler, What a strange dentist. I like him. Unless what he now has planned for you is even worse. I hope Florida isn't hellish. Well, I understand it is inherently hellish, but I hope its hellishness will be busy elsewhere while you're ensconced. ** Rewritedept, Cool about the acid, sucks about the aftermath. My weekend was work-filled and very good. I heard that 'The Lego Movie' is good. Definitely a plane selection thing for me. That is definitely some old stuff you're listening to. Glad the mothballs aren't creating a sonic problem. Next time stateside? Good question. After the first of the year sometime. Likely in the first couple of months. When will depends on a few undecided things including if our film gets in the Berlinnale 'cos we'll have to go there for that in February. Oh, man, so sorry about your friends' break-up. International second-hand hugs for Jake from me. ** Right. Go shopping in what Jonathan has in store for you until further notice meaning tomorrow at the earliest, thank you. See you then.

/ \ __Hallo und willkommen !

Here seeking only (customers) who enjoy an active fuck in the mouth for little money and a splatter on my face(VB)! (my face is 19 blond hair and blue eyes most of time).

If you are looking for a perennial and hot mouth to date, you are right with mine. Sexually, it can do everything. It can open, close, lick, get hammered, cuddle, massage, wash, strangle, bathe, ride, welcome, battle, celebrate and always surprise your rod just so long as you end with the cumshot on my face. You can push the cum into my mouth after but it has to land all over my face.

Apart from this exceptional good service, obviously you are also after outstanding good looks. With this package you get both. I guess I'm not egomaniac but since I made my self available in Leipzig some weeks ago the majority of my clients have become insane.

Justheguy, 23
London

Born in Cheshire, I moved to London to pursue a career in business and became attracted to the world of escorting for the freedom it would give me to invest in projects and to meet interesting people. The appreciation from clients who enjoy their time with me and benefit from the service I provide make this the most fun career I can imagine. I realized quickly that this was the perfect occupation for me and how much I enjoyed meeting a diverse variety of people and providing a service that is valued.

My professional and friendly attitude has helped me to become popular and in-demand quickly. However I always have time for my favourite activity which is meeting my clients and providing the highest quality service. With me you will meet an escort who genuinely enjoys meeting you, appreciates and respects his clients, is service orientated with the sole goal of providing the best service to each individual client. Whether high profile, Jack the lad or whoever. Gay, straight, curious or just adventurous for new experiences, I like people. All races. ages. sizes and disabilities are welcome to spend time with me.

I'm a cute 22 years old guy, studying here in Oradea. I'm sorry because I have to do this, but the faculty schedule doesn't allow me to work full time, only part-time. And, unfortunatley, in Oradea you won't find a part time job with flexible program in order to be in concordance with the schedule. If this is ok for you, we can go to the next step which is the meeting. If you like me, we go forward, and I undergo your wishes, if you don't, we say "good-bye" to eachother and move on, like nothing happend.

In the name of all that is holy, I implore you to fuck this boy. And when I say fuck, I mean a gusher, cannon fire, think of your dick as a firehose and blast his hole with everything you got, I did .... wahouuu

actif_cho - 3.Nov.2014
I COME TO HIM AND HE LET ME EXPLORE HIS HOLE! NOW I HAVE HIS PICS/VIDEOS IN MY HALL OF ""FF""AME! GO GET SOME OF IT!

Anonymous - 29.Nov.2014
No one else has mentioned this, but there's something very strange about him. When you're doing his hole, he never takes his eyes off you. No matter what position you put him in, no matter how extremely you use his hole, he always has his head turned to look at you, and the look in his eyes ... I don't know how to describe it. It scared the fuck out of me. There's something very wrong with him. If anyone else has the same experience, please comment.

OKCrawl - 3.Dec.2014
I'm so glad Anonymous mentioned that. Same thing happened on my date with him! It scared the living shit out of me too! WTF IS GOING ON WITH HIS EYES?!?!?!?!

teentwink4dads2, 19
Kent

I want to be a writer when I grow up. I'm currently working on a sex diary that I post on my tumblr. The combination of that and I guess the fact that I'm cute to gay men, which surprised the hell out of me, got me into doing sex work and amateur porn. In my writing, I develop theories on relationships and sex and I consider intercourse to be the coolest tool of communication between two people. So let's talk!

I firmly believe that anything worth having is worth working for. This means that we have to agree that there may be some difficult or even explosive times for each other when we have intercourse. This means that we must make sex work, providing that we agree that we want successful intercourse, agree to disagree, and not run away from the relationship. This means that we should never go to bed upset with each other.

By the way, my picture is kind of old. I'm not an Emo anymore and I'm even more skinny and my hair is short and I have a 6 1/2 inch cock.

My name is Larissa and I have a straight boyfriend. That's him with me in the photo. I have been told by one of my lifestyle friends that this is the location to find gay men into fucking cute straight boys. That is precisely what I need.

Recently my dumb-ass boyfriend disappointed me in a way that cannot be allowed to continue without the most severe form of punishment. He worships me and will do precisely as I demand or I will drop him so fast his head will spin. Now he is straight (or has always claimed to be) and has even spoken negatively about gay men calling them faggots and what not. In the past when I have threatened to have him used by men he has always panicked and begged me not to, but we are well beyond begging at this point. Now it is time for him to receive his punishment and I am looking to you wonderful men.

I want him used sexually. I want him brutally fucked. I want him to suck your cocks and rim your asses and be totally humiliated. I basically want him to wish that he never disobeyed me and will never do so again. The only limits I place on his use is scat. Also he is not allowed to cum or feel any pleasure. He WILL obey anything and everything you demand of him. He will be given 3 months worth of this punishment (December, January, and February) so we should be able to schedule something that works for you.

Once we agree on how to proceed, I will give you his email address and phone number. I would be glad to discuss any ideas you have for his sexual use. I want his being used sexually to be wild and merciless and absolute. Please feel free to correct the fact that he as a negative attitude about gay people and needs to stop using terms like faggot or queer. I will let you determine the best way to correct that behavior. As long as you want to use him for sex, anything is fine with me. I thank everyone for any help you have to offer.

I will consider trading him to you permanently for comparable property if you find him to be particularly great sex. It thrills me to no end thinking about him being permanently used as a fuck toy by gay men. Perhaps someone way more horny than me is needed to make him as useful as possible.

Hey. I'm starting this p.s. today while it's still dark outside and before I'm fully awake because I have an earlyish morning meeting I have to do, and I'll have to be brief with everyone, and I apologize for that and for any incoherence. ** David Ehrenstein, You all were, and you all are! ** Sypha, Hi. Well, I can only imagine about the literary wanderings in 'LM'. Yeah, those Stephen King cornball bits that he littered in the couple of things I read by him made my teeth clench permanently, perhaps, in his work's regard. ** Keaton, Computer geek and novelist, dude, welcome to the club! Jerry Cantrell, nice, sordid, ha ha! ** Steevee, Hi. Really, really interested to read you on the Dumont as soon as I can. Everyone, here are Steevee's thoughts on the new/upcoming film ('LI’L QUINQUIN') by the almost always great French filmmaker Bruno Dumont. And thanks for your top ten! Interesting. I don't know quite a few of them. Everyone, before we leave Steevee for today, here's his top ten best films of 2014 list: 1. BOYHOOD, 2. WHAT NOW? REMIND ME, 3. NIGHT MOVES, 4. ACTRESS, 5. STRAY DOGS, 6. THE KING OF ESCAPE, 7. GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE, 8. THE IMMIGRANT, 9. NIGHTCRAWLER, 10. SELMA. ** Bernard Welt, You know me so well. I do think I remember your Davy Jones story. I followed Mickey Dolenz around in an airport once when I was young enough to find him exciting. The only celeb I ever accidentally knocked over was Frank Zappa. At a drinking fountain at a concert venue. He was behind me in line. I didn't know. I drank, whipped around, bumped 'someone', and Frank Zappa fell flat on his ass. I ran. Surely you already know this, but Rudolf Nureyev cruised me very heavily in London in the mid-70s. Aw, so nice about the fiction class and its wisdom. ** _Black_Acrylic, Thank you a lot for that link. You know I love that kind of stuff, and I'm going to use it as a starting point for a Magical Winterland post. Yum. ** Bill, Hi. Someone I know just saw Gilbert & George walking down the street in Paris. Wet here too, but not as wet as you, I think, since your wet has been international news. ** Etc etc etc, Hi. Oh, I know and love early Wu Tang. When something in the genre is really innovative or startlingly good or something, I usually end up finding it one way or another. But, I don't know, contemporary hip hop is kind of like contemporary country music to me. I like the exceptions to the rules mostly usually. Kenneth Anger's eternal preservation is externally implemented. No real holiday plans. Look at stuff, eat stuff. Never do very much on the day itself. You? ** Paul Curran, Hi, Paul. Thanks, yeah, that SPD has a nice something or other. You could learn Japanese to write your J-novel, or you could be like me who wrote my French novel not knowing French. Actually, given the outcome, perhaps your first instinct is the right one. Yay about your nice Xmas. Me too, actually, in a way. ** Cobaltfram, Hey, Fram! Good to see you! I think perhaps and even probably that the more solitarily one writes the better the writer one is. I know there are exceptions. Things are good with me, very good, just very busy. Remind me when you'll be in Paris when we get closer in time, and hopefully between my planning and fate's machinations, our times here will align! ** Kyler, Hi. Oh, man, dentistry ... what a lovely art form, but from a great distance only. Best of luck. ** Kier, Hi with a capitol 'H'. Or is that with a 'capital' 'H'. I always get that confused. The LH Day is amazing! Wow, thank you infinitely. It's going to launch on this coming Saturday. It's so great! I"m blown away! Sad about the Xmas market's lack of complete success. What happened to all that gløgg? Your all-night fest sounds like big fun except for those two little conversations. Ugh, that's kind of scary about that guy's racism. Jesus. Not even kind of. I didn't see the Oslo photos yet. I'll find them. My weekend, very briefly, sorry ... Well, tons of editing and not much else. Christophe Honore, who's the film's associate producer, wanted to see the two "finished" scenes before we sent them off, so we showed them to him nervously, and, happily, he really likes them. He had three suggestions about changes, and we agreed with two and made them. Now they're in the hands of the producers and ... gulp. We think we can finish a third scene for the producers today. Hope so. It all went really well, and that was my weekend. Did you go to work today or not? ** Statictick, Hi, man. Sweet to have made your weekend! An art in Detroit circa 2014 post would be most and incredibly welcome, if you don't mind. Thank you! Hope you're doing great! ** Misanthrope, It didn't or maybe didn't? My world is maybe shattered or maybe not. Film work goes very well, I think, and definitely relentlessly. LPS at the gym! Good move, man. ** Okay. Again my apologies for being so speedy today. I should have my normal semi-leisurely p.s. time tomorrow. Until then, do what you wish and must with the escorts whom I have hand-selected for you today. See you tomorrow.
