I wonder if Kubrick would be busy having letters written to You Tube
about the proliferation of re-edits of short segments of his films?
Or would he just marvel at this new cultural phenomena and laugh along
with it.


Some of them are pretty funny. Some of them are crass or offensive,
but still funny. Some of them are just stupid....some just music
video recuts, some spoofs, some interpretations, some re-
inactments-------


Ultimatly I think it is complimentary to the filmmakers or artists
when their work has been co-opted by the society in such a way that it
is so well-known it has become like a meme to the culture.

here are some re-edits I've seen

The Shining



















Eyes Wide Shut





Full Metal Jacket

---quite good










Barry Lyndon







Clockwork Orange





---lol

that Kubrick, were he still alive, would devote a lot of energy to
having these ruinous pieces of sloppily mishmashed trash removed from

Beethoven's symphonies with farts, inserting dicks and graffiti in
Renaissance paintings by the old masters, and reciting the finest

I hate all of this shit like poison!  Funny that I could tolerate a

I concur, Ich. The stuff is trash, total garbage. The one "Shining"
spoof that re-cut the bathroom scene between Jack and Grady was truly
offensive. If the person who did it wasn't trying to be racist they
could have fooled me. They seemed to revel in playing around with the
use of the "N" word. The only thing worse than the video were the
comments by the viewers, a sorry-assed group of ignorant fucks as I've
ever encountered. They take anti-intellectualism to another level.

So do the other videos. These people appear to have money and access
to camera and editing software, and yet they waste their time doing
this shit. These videos are the equivalent to the comment which once
pointed out that just because one has a typewriter in their house it
doesn't make them Hemingway. And no matter how much re-editing is done
on Kubrick's films these clowns will never aspire to be anything other
than jerks who aren't even fit to shine Kubrick's shoes.

I doubt very much Kubrick would remove them. I think he think it was
funny and probably be amused how this kind of cultural phenomena was
happening.

of course most of them are bad, but some of them are funny-silly and
some are quite good little efforts, All of them are paying respect to
the greatness of Kubrick.

What a load of horseshit! These fuckwits are like derelict techno-
droogs escaped from the confines of ACO's frames to wreak havoc on all
of Kubrick's footage regardless of context or even subject matter
screaming "Are you ready for love?!!!" repeatedly and giggling like

What I am seeing here is the equivalent of graffitti-tagging the Mona
Lisa. In fact, what these jerks are doing is the same thing that we
see in the lobby of the building Alex and his family live, where the
mural is desecrated with obscene markings.

These morons (and they ARE morons) have been weaned by rap music,
video games and MTV. They are semi-literate assholes without one bit
of understanding context, as you pointed out yourself, Ich. Are these
same knuckle-draggers and mouth-breathers doing likewise with the more
commercial and popular films? I doubt it. Where is the fun in that?
No, let's just desecrate the real, genuine great works of cinema,
starting with those made by Stanley Kubrick. And these are prolly the
same type of shitheads who still think ACO is cool for the wrong
reasons. They also prolly think R. Lee Ermey is "one cool dude," yet
if any of them were to end up as a Marine recruit they might think
otherwise, because Ermey would rip them a new one to the point where
they would ask for seconds. But, no, here Ermey is a cult hero whose
celebrity status has been secured due to his show on the History
Channel, where he goes off on a semi-parody of his Sgt. Hartmann
persona, which not only might have watered down the context of the
boot camp sequence in FMJ, it might have also given the impression to
these hopeless couch potatoes that "war is cool."

I thought the one trailer parody was funny -- the one that turned "The
Shining" into a "feel-good" comedy. We discussed that one three years
ago. But what is with the "I like turtles" shit? What the fuck is that
all about?

And then Kelpzilla has the gall (and stupidity) to re-run those gawd-
awful FAKE Brian Atene videos. Didn't we already ferret out this
impostor two years ago?

Are people so dumbed-down that they don't even understand what it is
they are watching? Apparently so. It is this kind of mind-set that
would rather vote for some old white guy who has one foot in the
grave, only because he has a "hot looking" running mate, though to me
she looks like a composite drawing of every grade school and junior
high teacher, every PTA mom, every Cub Scout den mother, every high
school girlfriend's mother -- anyone who is a supreme ball-buster and
therefore every young male's worst nightmare -- than to vote for
someone who at least shows he will try his damndest to fight for
change and improvements in this country and its relationship to the
rest of the world should he be elected president.

Bog help us all.

she looks like a composite drawing of every grade school and junior
high teacher, every PTA mom, every Cub Scout den mother, every high
school girlfriend's mother -- anyone who is a supreme ball-buster and

At least these Kubrick You Tubers are doing SOMETHING Boaz.
You should try it.

Trashing Kubrick's films is not doing something, ASSHOLE.
Now be a good Buddhist and set yourself on fire.

I hate all of this shit like poison!  Funny that I could tolerate a
little Kubrick mangling before it became so easy to do it, but now
that the flood gates are open as you've taken the time to show us, I
just can't stand it!  It's so fucking disrespectful, and I feel sure
that Kubrick, were he still alive, would devote a lot of energy to
having these ruinous pieces of sloppily mishmashed trash removed from
YouTube et al.  These crappy clips are right up there with performing
Beethoven's symphonies with farts, inserting dicks and graffiti in
Renaissance paintings by the old masters, and reciting the finest
poetry revised as dirty limericks. "Jesus wept!"

I doubt very much Kubrick would remove them.

funny and probably be amused how this kind of cultural phenomena was
happening.
I think he might have been amused by allusions and references in stuff
like "The Simpsons" and "Airplane"-type movies, but this wholesale
slaughter of his actual imagery and sound is a whole other thing by
far!  His artistic integrity is forever violated!  As if you give a
shit!

of course most of them are bad, but some of them are funny-silly and
some are quite good little efforts,  All of them are paying respect to
the greatness of Kubrick.
What a load of horseshit!  These fuckwits are like derelict techno-
droogs escaped from the confines of ACO's frames to wreak havoc on all
of Kubrick's footage regardless of context or even subject matter
screaming "Are you ready for love?!!!" repeatedly and giggling like

What I am seeing here is the equivalent of graffitti-tagging the Mona
Lisa. In fact, what these jerks are doing is the same thing that we
see in the lobby of the building Alex and his family live, where the
mural is desecrated with obscene markings.
These morons (and they ARE morons) have been weaned by rap music,
video games and MTV. They are semi-literate assholes without one bit
of understanding context, as you pointed out yourself, Ich. Are these
same knuckle-draggers and mouth-breathers doing likewise with the more
commercial and popular films? I doubt it. Where is the fun in that?
No, let's just desecrate the real, genuine great works of cinema,
starting with those made by Stanley Kubrick. And these are prolly the
same type of shitheads who still think ACO is cool for the wrong
reasons. They also prolly think R. Lee Ermey is "one cool dude," yet
if any of them were to end up as a Marine recruit they might think
otherwise, because Ermey would rip them a new one to the point where
they would ask for seconds. But, no, here Ermey is a cult hero whose
celebrity status has been secured due to his show on the History
Channel, where he goes off on a semi-parody of his Sgt. Hartmann
persona, which not only might have watered down the context of the
boot camp sequence in FMJ, it might have also given the impression to

Halloran's snowcat. So you've been fucking a dummy these past few
weeks.

Wendy: Jack, I'm not me, I'm not Wendy. Danny and Wendy left here
weeks ago with Halloran just after we replaced ourselves with animated
mannequin dummies. You're here all on your own with the Overlook's
spectres and some dummies in Wendy and Danny's likeness. We dummies
too are spectres. If you'd like, and we know you'd like, you can even
bash our brains 'right the fuck in' as you always like to threaten,

I hate all of this shit like poison!  Funny that I could tolerate a
little Kubrick mangling before it became so easy to do it, but now
that the flood gates are open as you've taken the time to show us, I
just can't stand it!  It's so fucking disrespectful, and I feel sure
that Kubrick, were he still alive, would devote a lot of energy to
having these ruinous pieces of sloppily mishmashed trash removed from
YouTube et al.  These crappy clips are right up there with performing
Beethoven's symphonies with farts, inserting dicks and graffiti in
Renaissance paintings by the old masters, and reciting the finest
poetry revised as dirty limericks. "Jesus wept!"
"Private Pyle, what are you trying to do to my beloved Corps?"
i
"piop"
I doubt very much Kubrick would remove them.
Of course you say this!  Fartdick apologist!

 I think he think it was
funny and probably be amused how this kind of cultural phenomena was
happening.
I think he might have been amused by allusions and references in stuff
like "The Simpsons" and "Airplane"-type movies, but this wholesale
slaughter of his actual imagery and sound is a whole other thing by
far!  His artistic integrity is forever violated!  As if you give a
shit!
Post by kelpzoidzl
of course most of them are bad, but some of them are funny-silly and
some are quite good little efforts,  All of them are paying respect to
the greatness of Kubrick.
What a load of horseshit!  These fuckwits are like derelict techno-
droogs escaped from the confines of ACO's frames to wreak havoc on all
of Kubrick's footage regardless of context or even subject matter
screaming "Are you ready for love?!!!" repeatedly and giggling like
school kids the whole while spanking egg bubbles in their
underpants...
"Pitiful rookerful..."
i
"piop"
What I am seeing here is the equivalent of graffitti-tagging the Mona
Lisa. In fact, what these jerks are doing is the same thing that we
see in the lobby of the building Alex and his family live, where the
mural is desecrated with obscene markings.
These morons (and they ARE morons) have been weaned by rap music,
video games and MTV. They are semi-literate assholes without one bit
of understanding context, as you pointed out yourself, Ich. Are these
same knuckle-draggers and mouth-breathers doing likewise with the more
commercial and popular films? I doubt it. Where is the fun in that?
No, let's just desecrate the real, genuine great works of cinema,
starting with those made by Stanley Kubrick. And these are prolly the
same type of shitheads who still think ACO is cool for the wrong
reasons. They also prolly think R. Lee Ermey is "one cool dude," yet
if any of them were to end up as a Marine recruit they might think
otherwise, because Ermey would rip them a new one to the point where
they would ask for seconds. But, no, here Ermey is a cult hero whose
celebrity status has been secured due to his show on the History
Channel, where he goes off on a semi-parody of his Sgt. Hartmann
persona, which not only might have watered down the context of the
boot camp sequence in FMJ, it might have also given the impression to
these hopeless couch potatoes that "war is cool."
I thought the one trailer parody was funny -- the one that turned "The
Shining" into a "feel-good" comedy. We discussed that one three years
ago. But what is with the "I like turtles" shit? What the fuck is that
all about?
And then Kelpzilla has the gall (and stupidity) to re-run those gawd-
awful FAKE Brian Atene videos. Didn't we already ferret out this
impostor two years ago?
Are people so dumbed-down that they don't even understand what it is
they are watching? Apparently so. It is this kind of mind-set that
would rather vote for some old white guy who has one foot in the
grave, only because he has a "hot looking" running mate, though to me
she looks like a composite drawing of every grade school and junior
high teacher, every PTA mom, every Cub Scout den mother, every high
school girlfriend's mother -- anyone who is a supreme ball-buster and
therefore every young male's worst nightmare -- than to vote for
someone who at least shows he will try his damndest to fight for
change and improvements in this country and its relationship to the
rest of the world should he be elected president.
Bog help us all.

It's the horrendously parasitic nature of such vacuous u-tube pastiche
that is particularly galling (and, even worse, the idiots who actively
promote them, like the must-post-more-looney-drivel Kelps parasite).
Deflationary, desublimating, desensitizing, ahistorical, apolitical,
kids-in-a-candy-store consumerist delirium, a gratuitous zombie
clipfest that confirms McLuhan's prescient "the medium is the
message." Of course, like net porn, it can only get worse ...

Wendy: Jack, there's something maybe very important I have to tell

Jacksmith: And what maybe is so very important that you have to tell

Wendy: I think  maybe it's about Danny and me.
Jacksmith: So you think maybe it's about Danny and you.
Wendy: Jack, Jack! Danny and I ain't real. We ... we're just
mannequins, puppets playing to the real Wendy and Danny's instruction.

On Strangelove:

Paul Krassner: "Nelson Algren says that The Magic Christian, Candy and
Dr. Strangelove are each aspects of the same novel. How would you say
they're related?

TS: "They might well be part of the same, but they are not all mine,
because the basic conception of treating the bomb as "absurd" was
Kubrick's. I think what you'll find they all have in common is that
they blast smugness--and where you find smugness, there is sure to be
something worth blasting. "Smugness" probably sounds like an
oversimplification of "Strangelove", but I think that's what it
finally comes down to...smugness over a foolproof system which may not
be."

Ichor---you truly are retarded.


Did someone accidentally shrink you down into a syringe like that
movei "innerspace" and inject you into Sk's bloodstream so you could
witness his every moment first hand?

You really have this idiotic graps of reality and can;t fathom the
reality that people took LSD in the 60's and kept it quiet. And your
utterly foolish suspicion about my personal knowledge of SK's
connection to the Buddhist sects I have been a part of for 40+ years,
is just plain nutty and deranged.

As far as evidence for the buddist connection it has been right in
front of your face. We all know the original conception for the
object was trianular and then SK changed it to the Monolith. My
Buddhist sect has such a Monolith same size and shape and it ancient
text had as it's centerpiece what is called the "ceremony in the air"
when this "stupa" object is floating in space surrounded by all
beings. There is also the quote form Arthur Clarke, "we just
discovered there is a Buddhist Sect that......etc."

I really don't care if you ever want to accept this or not, but it is
just fact. Although I didn't get to see it happen because I arrived
late, I was told, "you just missed Stanley Kubrick receiving gokukai"
by the daughter of well known producer/director also there at the
time, who I will not name. I would think you would have more sense,
but then I am always in denial as to just how dumb and ignorant
people can be.

Ichor---Reminder of this article in the 1968 LA TIMES Even this
guys mentions the "Buddhist Sect"

http://hollywoodlostandfound.net/features/2001/

" Hollywood Lost and Found "

"A Scientist's Evaluation of 2001," page 4


Under the control of the extraterrestrials, Dullea is swept out of the
universe as we know it. (He does not, as many have supposed, land on
Jupiter.) After a pan away from Jupiter, the "trip" begins with a
series of weird images that, in 70-mm. widescreen presentation, are
very impressive.

Although Kubrick's abstractions are quite striking, the effects are
actually somewhat repetitive and lack the brilliant creativeness of
such abstract film artists as Jordan Belson. Much of the abstractions'
power results from the medium itself; the 70mm film, the huge screen
and the high-fidelity sounds.




Kubrick uses some aerial cinematography with what seems to be intense
negative color. The red sandstone of Monument Valley becomes green and
the eroded pinnacles of Bryce Canyon become even more fantastic than
they naturally are.

Dullea eventually finds himself and the space pod in what can only be
described as a futuristic Louis XVI apartment with a glowing
translucent floor. In this apartment, he sees himself age and die in a
matter of moments. This sequence has the weird feeling common to
experimental films of the 1930s and 40s. As Dullea lies dying, there
is a slab at the foot of the bed. The astronaut dies and is reborn as
a new transcendental being; his embryo is shown returning to earth.

The implication seems to be that the first slab gave man the spark
that turned him into a tool-using animal; now man has been elevated
beyond tools. Another major step in man's development has occurred.

The basic theme of "2001" is the interaction of extraterrestrial
entities with man. There is a Nichiren sect of Buddhism (Shoshu
Sokagakkai) that venerates a 12-foot, black cedar tablet (Dai-
gohonzon) that bears a striking resemblance to the extraterrestrial
slab in "2001." Whether or not the resemblance is a coincidence, I
don't know. (Arthur C. Clarke says he has no religion but is
sympathetic to Buddhism.)

The basic objection here is the overwhelming evidence that evolution
is a natural process. There is no known objective reason to postulate
extraterrestrial influence in human evolution.

The success of "2001" will doubtlessly inspire many would-be
imitators. Most will probably miss the key ingredient of Kubrick's
success.

The real lesson of "2001" is that there now exists a large, visually
oriented audience, predominately young, that is ready and willing to
pay for mind-stretching films. To tap this market, filmmakers will
need something many of them, especially those in the science-fiction
field, have seldom evidenced: high-level, intelligent creativity.

The "comparison" was droll humor.
Fair enough, but your siding yourself with Genitalicesimo Krapzilla de
Trailmixe and his Selectric Lik-a-Maid Buddhist Acid Test makes me
ever dubious of your motivations.  Was Kubrick a closet-Buddhist and
acid-dropper?  Answer that to redeem yourself if you care.  If you're
like most rational Kubrick lovers you've got to say that this
unrepentant retardildouche Kelpsydoodle is a major detriment to the
group and Kubrick's memory.  Where then do you stand?
I don't agree with everything he says, but he's never been anything
but kind to me, so I in turn reciprocate.
W : )
Ichor doesn't get it that people could, just discuss things without
bitter recriminations. He also doesn't get it that when he throws
stones, eventually he is going to get them hurled back. Anything that
is outside his knowledge or experience is automatically wrong in his
mind. I am not the least bit afraid of getting gnaged up on by
Ichor, Boaz, Padraig or Portia. They are just lame in behavior and
poor representatives of Stanley Kubrick in a NG, regardless of the
occasional good information they may find opr discuss.


Ichor, imagines that AMK is a blog owned by him and Boaz and anyone
he allows into his gang--as long as they take thjeir narrow side. Its
a delusion that he even defends Padraig when he is in his flame out
mode.

Beyond all that which is just commonsense, ichor and Boaz have a
nasty, devisive, gang mentality, which in my view is antithetical to
everything Kubrick stood for. There are many millions of Kubrick fans
who are devoted to Kubrick that shouldn;t be looked down on. Only a
handful of people read or post to AMK. There a a dozen excellent blog
companies where people can write blogs for free and have total
control over the content. I suggest him and boaz go to one and stop
bothering with with they wish to think are beneath them.

i've put up with this nonsense ever since i had the audacity to tell a
personal experience related to Kubrick regarding buddhism, or tell of
what I had heard in the 60's regarding LSD and Kubrick from a very
reliable source---a medical professional whom I wont name due to
privacy issues. It was common knowledge within a particular group of
people at the time, when LSD was a legal thing. I am not sure which
one of three or four people actually gave it to him and have no idea
how many time he experimented--maybe only once. I do not know and
have always made that clear. Likewise I have also always said that I
do not know anything about Kubrick's later degree of Buddhist
conviction beyond his intial buddhist initiation. Many people would
attend the buddhist initiation, receive a paper scroll version of the
mandala and go about thier lives. I do know that in order to receive
that initiation a person did have to be practising and did have to
know the basics and I also know as we all do that Kubrick would delve
into the study of things deeply and how private a person he was.
similarly when ACC says "I am a crypto buddhist" I know exactly what
he means.

For me I would always be interested in knowing anything people on AMK
had experienced or had personal knowledge of, that shed light on
Kubrick or his films and I would always, take what was said, in good
faith.

Being nasty is just nasty and if I have to defend myself from nasty
people I will, although lowering myself down to that level sucks.

I would suggest Wordpress, Technorati or Blogger as a good place for
Boaz, Ichor to take their "serious" Kubrick discussion to, so they
don't have to listen to anyone else or allow anyone that may have
something to say that isn't within the bounds of their ability ot
comprehend. Padraig too Might consider using one of those blogs for
his commie stuff.


Our they just learn to be civil.---HA HA.--that'll be the day.

You could be right. Maybe SK did trip out. But maybe he didn't.
Whether
he did or didn't doesn't seem to have affected the quality of his

is exemplary. Of course, an argument could be made that, if he was a
doper,
his films would have been better had he not been. It's all

Wrong as always it seems, what I think is that people ought to be held
responsible for what they say. As for AMK, you've had specious and
highly dubious (to say the least) claims to make about Kubrick that
are unverified, uncorroborated and only vacuously documented as if
proving your claims is some kind of demented shell game for the fully
retarded to fall for. Add to this your own utter vacuousness,
disingenuous, pure ignorance and nasty (for a Buddhist) disposition,
which is completely unrepentant and shameless in the face of anything
resembling reality.
In other words, you suck!

You hit on the very thing that's most fucked about Kelpers claims.
It's insidious to think that Kubrick was as great as he was because of
chemical intervention. It's the great personal rationalizer for the

take it. To me it's like saying that David Lean was on peyote, and

discussion and piss all over everything. I post reviews and essays on
books about Kubrick, and then you dismiss them as "book reports" from
your ivory tower and proceed to make asinine comments on Kubrick being
some acid dropping Buddhist who belonged to some secret society, which
you also were conveniently a member of at the same time. How about

Are you telling us to get off of the Kubrick newsgroup and write about
Kubrick elsewhere instead of here? You are truly demented. Been
sprinkling a little LSD into your bong water there again? Where will
our "departure" leave the newsgroup? For you to post your Buffy shit
and more of your bullshit about Kubrick being a member of some acid-
dropping secret Buddhist sect? Who the fuck are you to tell us to
leave and blog elsewhere? You take arrogance to another level.

Yes, I am furious. I despise people like you, Kelpsy. You bring out
the worst in people, and you've brought out the worst in me. You have
no positive traits whatsovever, and you see to it that no one else
here can bring out theirs. You make them defensive from the get-go.

Yeah, you don't want such records to go public, right? It might damage

It was common knowledge within a particular group of

When was LSD ever legal in this country, Dr. Leary? It was *always*
illegal. Now, it was *fashionable* to drop acid back in the '60s, but
legal? No way. What alternate universe did you drop out of? Or was it
a tree?

have always made that clear.  
Because you made it all up. Because you are mentally ill yourself, is

Post by kelpzoidzl
Likewise I have also always said that I
do not know anything about Kubrick's later degree of Buddhist
conviction beyond his intial buddhist initiation.  
Because he never had any initiation. When did he find the time to do
that? Are you suggesting Kubrick was like Vonnegut's Billy Pilgrim,
able to live on Tralfamadore yet continue to live a normal life on
earth, despite being thrown back and forth in time? Is your acid
flashback permanent? Are too many of your brain cells now nothing more
than prune-whipped yogurt?

Many people would
attend the buddhist initiation, receive a paper scroll version of the
mandala and go about thier lives.  
A scroll, or a roll of toilet paper?
Post by kelpzoidzl
I do know that in order to receive
that initiation a person did have to be practising and did have to
know the basics and I also know as we all do that Kubrick would delve
into the study of things deeply and how private a person he was.
So, if Kubrick was so private, how is it that you happened to have all
of this intimate knowledge of his life? How is it that you know more
than his family? Are you saying you know more than Katharina, who used
to post here frequently? Or is she fed up with an asshole like you?

For me I would always be interested in knowing anything people on AMK
had experienced or had personal knowledge of, that shed light on
Kubrick or his films and I would always, take what was said, in good

Why? You would only refute what was being written, contradict the
people who posted it and then go on your Buffy rants, your Buddhist
rants and personal recollections that have nothing to do with anything
Kubrick. By the time the thread ran itself out the subject would have
changed at least half a dozen times. That's your MO, Kelpzilla. You
derail the discussion so that anyone coming in will not see the
original post, only your "Oh woe is me! I'm being picked on by Ichor,

Everytime I posted my comments on a book about Kubrick or Kubrick's
films you'd jump all over me and contradict what I'd written, saying
it wasn't that important. You are a bully, Kelps. You cannot do this
in the real world, so you come here to this newsgroup and take out
your childhood hangups on us. You prolly can't have anyone be in the
same room with you for five minutes without them wanting to rip your
throat out. You'd try Ghandi's patience.

You are intimidated by the things Genevieve, Ichorwhip, Padraig and I
write. You prolly breezed through school, and that eventually caught
up with you when it came time to engage in any intelligent discussion.
I've met people like you in person, and they use the same tactics to
derail a discussion. You can't do it, so you try to make sure no one
else can do it.
Post by kelpzoidzl
I would suggest Wordpress, Technorati or Blogger as a good place for
Boaz, Ichor to take their "serious" Kubrick discussion to, so they
don't have to listen to anyone else or allow anyone  that may have
something to say that isn't within the bounds of their ability ot
comprehend.  Padraig too Might consider using one of those blogs for
his commie stuff.
And I suggest you take a flying fuck. What is this, King of AMK? You
worthless piece of shit. Are you telling us to go play elsewhere? Take
our discussions of Kubrick AWAY from the Kubrick newsgroup? So you can
go on about your silly, meaningless bullshit about Kubrick being some
member of an acid-dropping Buddhist sect? You are warped, Kelpsy. You
are like a lot of people I've met who have hit 60 or older now. They
end up bitter over what they did in their youth, and now they've
become "born-again conservatives." You have shown what a racist scum
you are, with the way you've gone on about Obama. What do these videos
have to do with Kubrick? Huh? Answer me that, Kelpsy. This is the
Kubrick newsgroup, not the "I Hate Obama Because I am a Disgusting
Acid-Dropping Asshole Newsgroup."
Post by kelpzoidzl
Our they just learn to be civil.---HA HA.--that'll be the day.
Not while you're around. You threw the gauntlet down long ago,
pothead. We had a pretty fair and interesting newsgroup until you
decided to piss all over everything, like some wolf out for prey.

By the way, I'm still sure it was you in those tighty-tight black gym
shorts that revealed some "male cellulite" at that time at the Borders
in West Hollywood a couple of years ago. I saw some white-haired sixty-
something talking to a clerk about the newest Buffy boxed set. And he
seemed pretty "enthusiastic" about it, to put it mildly. I've never
seen him back there. Did I "out" you then? If so, I'm doing it again.

I'm still here, and I'm not going anywhere.

When was LSD ever legal in this country, Dr. Leary? It was *always*
illegal. Now, it was *fashionable* to drop acid back in the '60s, but
legal? No way.
It was totally legal in all 50 states until October 6, 1966 in California.
A federal law made it illegal in 1967 nation-wide, and it was classified
as a "Schedule 1" narcotic in the Nixon administration's consolidation
of all the federal drug laws in 1970.

Here is one of dozens of links that would pop up if you just typed
"LSD made illegal" in a Google(TM) search:

"The drug is believed to have first appeared on the street in the U.S.
in 1963 and by 1966 the mainstream media began recognizing the
widespread use of the LSD. It was also in 1966 that LSD was made
illegal in California, in 1967 the Federal government banned the
substance." - http://www.drugabusehelp.com/drugs/lsd/

Speaking of the "mainstream media", one of my all-time favorite
episodes of the old "Dragnet" show was one that covered this exact
topic. It opened with some beat cops arresting an LSD-crazed
hippie in a children's playground who had buried his head in the
tan-bark of the swing sets. They take him downtown, but Friday
tells them they can't charge him with anything, because there's
no law on the books about LSD.

The rest of the episode was then just a long-winded lobbying
exercise for tougher drug laws. They talked about how the California
legislature was taking its sweet time passing a law against LSD,
but they needed the law NOW, presumably to prevent the monstrous
crime of hippies burying their heads in swing-set tan-bark, plus
they needed tougher enforcement of the marijuana laws.

But the pay-off came at the end of the show. They had tried
several times to arrest a young married couple with a baby who
smoked pot, but the evidence always got flushed before they
could make the bust. With nothing better to do for the rest of
the day after that, Friday and Gannon engaged in a long pointless
debate with the couple about whether or not drugs are a "victimless"
crime.

Suddenly, the woman realizes something, runs into the bathroom,
and screams. Friday and Gannon run into the bathroom, where
they see her baby, floating drowned in the bathtub where Mommy
Pothead forgot her. So Friday, like the callous psychopath he was,
just can't resist getting his last word in: "You think drugs are a
victimless crime. THERE'S your victim."

But even better:

Gannon: I'd like to request that I be allowed to leave the scene.
Friday: Why?
Gannon: Because for the first time in 25 years on the job, I think
I'm going to be sick.
Friday: Permission granted.
[GANNON RUNS OUT WITH CHEEKS INFLATED WITH MOUTH VOMIT,
ZOOM IN ON FRIDAY'S DISGUSTED FACE]
[FADE TO PERP SENTENCING OUTRO]

Perhaps even funnier than the end of "Dr. Zhivago" if that's possible...

Anyway, "Bore-Ass", since you were factually incorrect on the
topic of LSD legality prior to the late sixties, I will now wait patiently
for you to admit that you were wrong, since I know you are cut
from the same moral cloth as "Icky-Whipped", who hilariously
averred in this very thread that:

"That's why I keep myself safe in a fortress of
the truth. And when I'm wrong I admit it, something you never do."

BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Man, I swear I can't remember him EVER admitting he was factually
wrong about the many things I "corrected" him on, but who knows, he
might have done it ONCE or twice...mostly, he just resorts to slinging
the "n-word" around and actionable libel when cornered by the pesky
truth...

Hmmmm, well at least you didn't use the "n-word" and call me
a "crook", but just like our little Quote Monkey(TM), you have no
ability to admit you're factually wrong about something, which to
me seems like a simple thing to do.

But remember one of my most often-stated axioms:

"Those who are the most often incorrect are the least likely
to ever admit making a mistake."

This, like much of what I write, is the truest and most perceptive
thing you will ever read on Usenet. Smart people, when they make
a mistake, just admit it, file away the correct fact in their memory, and
move on. This is actually an important part of how they continue to
become more knowledgable over time.

Stupid people, on the other hand...

These morons (and they ARE morons) have been weaned by rap music,
video games and MTV. They are semi-literate assholes without one bit
of understanding context, as you pointed out yourself, Ich. Are these
same knuckle-draggers and mouth-breathers doing likewise with the more
commercial and popular films? I doubt it. Where is the fun in that?
They'd be fucking Welles and Antonioni and Renoir and Bergman and
Kurosawa and Lean if only they knew the slightest bit about them or
anyone else as if film has a history steeped in artistic greatness.

No, let's just desecrate the real, genuine great works of cinema,
starting with those made by Stanley Kubrick. And these are prolly the
same type of shitheads who still think ACO is cool for the wrong
reasons.
I always go back to that Halloween party I went to in Girls Gone Wild
land aka Panama City, Florida well over a decade ago wherein a
highschool buddy of mine dressed as Alex replete with codpiece,
eyelash and bowler. As the drencrom and alcohol and smirkery
coalesced into a happy countenance in my erstwhile pal I gently told
him that later I should remind him of what an idiot he is and why.
And he remains one to this day.

They also prolly think R. Lee Ermey is "one cool dude," yet
if any of them were to end up as a Marine recruit they might think
otherwise, because Ermey would rip them a new one to the point where
they would ask for seconds. But, no, here Ermey is a cult hero whose
celebrity status has been secured due to his show on the History
Channel, where he goes off on a semi-parody of his Sgt. Hartmann
persona, which not only might have watered down the context of the
boot camp sequence in FMJ, it might have also given the impression to
these hopeless couch potatoes that "war is cool."
So true! Sgt. Hartman is "cute and funny", but the underlying blood
and guts are grim. Lee Ermey has dishonored himself and dishonored
the corp with his continued cheapening of Hartman. He is as
irrelevant an actor as Kubrick ever employed.

I thought the one trailer parody was funny -- the one that turned "The
Shining" into a "feel-good" comedy. We discussed that one three years
ago.
Yeah, that was initially amusing but it soon began to fester and reek
with time and the realization as to what this meant for the future of
Kubrick's films.

Are people so dumbed-down that they don't even understand what it is

I think Tina Fey is actually hotter even though she needs microwaving

I wonder if Kubrick would be busy having letters written to You Tube
about the proliferation of re-edits of short segments of his films?
Or would he just marvel at this new cultural phenomena and laugh along
with it.
KUBRICK
Jesus H. Christ! Private Kelps, why is your laptop unlocked?

KELPS
Sir, I don't know, sir!

KUBRICK
Private Kelps, if there is one thing in this world that
I hate, it is an unlocked laptop! You know that, don't you?

KELPS
Sir, yes, sir!

KUBRICK
If it wasn't for dickheads like you, there wouldn't be any thievery in
this world, would there?

KELPS
Sir, no, sir!

KUBRICK
Give it to me!
Well, now .. . let's just see if there's anything missing!
Holy Jesus! What is that? What is that, Private Kelps?!

KELPS
Sir, it's a You-Tube Kubrick Clip-fest, sir!

KUBRICK
A You-Tube Kubrick Clip-fest?!

KELPS
Sir, yes, sir!

KUBRICK
How did it get there?

KELPS
Sir, I took some scenes from your films and put it together, sir!

KUBRICK
Are you allowed to fuck with other recruits' belongings in the
barracks, Private Kelps?

KELPS
Sir, no, sir!

KUBRICK
Are you allowed to fuck with my movies, Private Kelps?

KELPS
Sir, no, sir!

KUBRICK
And why not, Private Kelps?

KELPS
Sir, because I'm a stupid selfish pig, sir!

KUBRICK
Because you are an ignorant disgusting fatbody, Private Kelps!

KELPS
Sir, yes,sir!

KUBRICK
Then why did you make this You-tube clipfest, Private Kelps?

KELPS
Sir, because I was hungry for images, sir!


KUBRICK
Because you were hungry for images?
Private Kelps has dishonored himself and dishonored the platoon! I
have tried to help him, but I have failed! I have failed because you
have not helped me! You people have not given Private Kelps the proper
motivation! So, from now on, whenever Private Kelps fucks up, I will
not punish him, I will punish all of you! And the way I see it,
ladies, you owe me for one You-tube clipfest! Now, get on your faces!

like "possible", to do in one's free time.
Too bad that in your "free time" you can't do something more original
than to take a pivotal scene from a great film and reduce it to a
cheap gay joke.

Perhaps if you were to read some of the comments on this thread more
carefully (beyond the personal attacks that have flooded it) you would
see that the major criticism is aimed at the lack of originality in
these videos. At least some of the student films I recall from my
college days tried to aspire to be something better than what the end
result produced. And that was due to the lack of money, or the
equipment just wasn't up to the level that the needs were. Or to use
friends as actors -- most of whom did not possess much talent, let
alone screen presence -- also hindered one's vision.

But this "phantom edit" nonsense that I see of yours, along with the
other feeble attempts to "spoof" Kubrick's other films, only leaves me
sad and disenchanted. Is that all there is? What's your point? I
wonder if you even understood the subtext of the original scene.

Anyway, I think most of us have ignored you until this point because,
if you have read the comments on this thread that pertain to this and
the other YouTube videos, you ought to know the general concensus is
not favorable to your "efforts."

If "2001" is your "favorite" film, why do this? It is like painting a
moustache on the Mona Lisa, like putting a fig leaf on Adam in the
Sistine Chapel ceiling painting; like putting a disco or rap beat to
Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

Why not use your access to your editing software to share with us your
thoughts as to why "2001" is your "favorite" film? How about showing
us examples of why this is such a great work of cinema. Up until now
we've only used words to decipher, discuss, parse and analyze a medium
that relies largely on images. If I had such free time I would like to
produce such a work for discussion.

Maybe when you can show us something that distinguishes Ken F.
Vermithrall (if that *is* your real name) from the other "fanboys" who
use their digital video cameras and their editing software for more
than just engaging in a circle jerk in cyperspace you might find
yourself being taken more seriously among those of us who still hold
Kubrick in high esteem, discussing his films -- really discussing them
-- and not simply graffiti-tagging them for a cheap laugh.

I didn't attack you for the Book reports untill you started flaming.
In fact I complemented quite a few things you wrote. But I expressed
my distaste for pseudo-academic authors inventing things about Kubrick
as though it is scientific fact, rather then what it really us------
subjective, agenda driven nonsense------which much of it is, and how
it annoys me

I also made the point that many of these pontificating, psuedo-
academic movie reviews, by these "experts" are the same kind of
pretentious stuff Kubrick hated. Your admiration for books like "The
Wolf at the Door" shows me you buy into ideopathic conjecture,
written as though it's fact, when in reality IMO, it is at the level
of a conspriacy theory, falsely legitimized with academic jargon.

It was an opinion you didn't want to hear and the rest was downhill in
your idiotic flames.

Your reactions to my opinion was fully out of touch with reality and
no amount of my attempt to reason with you wouold pull you out of your
flame mode. You are smug, dumb and nasty---obviously bitter about
your own life and so you hide from yourself, mentally masturbating.

You narrow minded jerk. I am interested in all sorts of things. I
didn't "buy into" anything. I thought it was a very well researched
book. Have you read it? Of course not! You know nothing about it, not
enough to criticize it, anyway. My comments were to get people to read
it and discuss it. If they wanted to disprove the theory, fine. Bring
on the arguments. But, no, assholes like you decided to bring on the
flame throwers because they didn't have enough intellgence to
formulate a proper argument. You are like the average Republican

Isn't that more in the nature of a multi-film trailer for some
imaginary or putative Kubrick Film Season, whether on TV or in a
theatre or at a film festival? At that level it may have some merit,
but otherwise it seems like just another example of, confirmation of,
machinic permutation, postmodern pastiche, and iconic reductivism for
purposes of instant consumption and gratification, or in this case,
the hedonistic treadmill of dionysian nihilism (the only 'sense' or
suturing deriving from the editing/cuts in rhythm to the soundtrack,
with sequences of cuts 'themed' by the repetition of similar dramatic
moments from each film).

"It is precisely Kubrick's coldness and slowness that are missed in a
contemporary culture that is so obsessively 'warm' and 'fast';
ingratiating, emotionally exploitative, relentlessly fidgety. Kubrick
took us out of ourselves: not via the transports of ecstatic fervour,
but through the icy contemplation of what drives and traps us, and
the
vision of a universe indifferent to our passions. To see the
mechanical deathliness of the human world from the perspective of
that
indiffferent universe: that is what Kubrick offered us. A vision of
God (which is also an approximation of God's vision).

Kubrick returns - why deny it? - to an essentially religious
sensibility, although his religion is 'atheistic' in the same sense
Spinoza's was. For Spinoza, God = immanence, matter in itself, the
gloriously dispassionate, desolated cosmos. Kubrick evokes the
desubjectified affects of awe and dread, rather than the compulsory,
socially-endorsed, 'warm' emotions of empathy/ sympathy, as homage to
a universe whose indifference entails not pessimism, but freedom:
freedom from the miserable prisonhouse of the human.
Post by MP
sentimentality, speed, and noise. (i.e puerile sentimentality, high
speed cutting, and an excessively loud bang or explosion every few
minutes).
Couldn't agree more. I guess what's interesting about this is the
tension between the quick-cutting and the sentimentality: the
quick-cutting gives films a disocciated, schizophrenic quality (I'm
thinking of Jameson's observation that postmodern subjectivity is
'schizophrenic' in that it is unable to synthesize a coherent sense
of
time), which is so abstract that you would imagine it was evacuated
of
any emotion. I guess the sentimentality is what 'glues together' what
would otherwise be a experience devoid of much connecting thread. "

To this then could be added - in the case of most youtube re-
scrambling of images and sonics - the quick-fix reductivism, the
reduction of a work or text to a short attention-span, quickly
digestible, blankly immediate, pastiche spectacle, without context,
without pause, without reflection, and without memory.

Yes, that's exactly what it is. A post modern pastiche in which a
bunch of Kubrick moments are taken out of context, strung together and
presented as a bravura showreel.

But what's the difference between this and what Jan Harlan does at the
beginning of his documentary? Harlan takes Kubrick's filmography,
selects several striking images, and hits us with a loud montage. This
is Kubrick, Harlan says. Powerful images, memorable compositions and
neat music. Harlan then proceeds to reduce Kubrick's art to a series
of soundbites.

The fact is, any homage to Kubrick, no matter how well intentioned,
reduces his work. In the Bible, God orders his followers to never
construct images of him. To do so would reduce his glory and
magnificance. After all, how can a mere replica ever hope to convey
the greatness of God?

You're arguing likewise. To reproduce Kubrick, dilutes the meaning of
Kubrick. It reduces Kubrick to a mere object. A false idol to look
upon. And I agree with you. But how do you distinguish between
celebrating a director and reducing his work?

90 percent of all Kubrick fans already love him for fairly superficial
reasons. They love him for his style, his imagery and his "accessible
artyness". They celebrate Kubrick through montages like this, which,
essentially ammount to nothing more than bombastic, masturbatory
images.

To the 10 percent or so who really delve deeper into Kubrick, we
celebrate him through conversations like these. Through articles,
contemplation, books and countless essays. Like the scholars who
transcribed the Bible, we approach Kubrick through the mind and the
written word.

But the masses need their Kubrick iconography, their silly fan vids
and their montages. They've never read Kubrick. Most don't care to.
The best case scenerio is that vids like these seduce young viewers,
and hopefully, through time, lead them to something more meaingful.

What you're really rallying against is a Clockwork future in which art
has lost the power to kill. In which all art has been reproduced,
chopped up and spat back out to the point that it loses all value.
This is already happening. It will get worse.
The only way to fight it is to impose sanctions on your own art. Thou
shalt not reproduce this, least you feel the wrath of copyright
infringement.

From your nasty, crazy suspicious attack on my posts about the
buddhist connection or LSD related remarks to your equally as wacky
idea you saw me at a book store in West Hollywood buying Buffy
DVDs........you are just a nasty paranoid wacko, Boaz.

Although you must live at the bottom of a well, hundreds of thousands
of people from the US and UK took the buddhist initiation in those
years, likewise millions of people have enthusiastically bought Buffy
DVDs.

Due to some warped and narrow Ideas of Reference you think that was
me at your bookstore or that I have white hair, cellulite etc. Fact
is Boaz, I've never been in Border's in West Hollywood.

You are a crank Boaz with 3 crank friends (ichor, gen, padraig)
coveting this NG like it was your own possession and posting after
each other as though you are joined at the hip.

I remember I think the first argument we had was you taking personal
my disappointment in "A Very Long Engagement"----I agreed with what
you wrote----- the battle scene were very reminiscent to "Paths of
Glory"---but then when I went on giving my opinion I said I didn't
like the weird cutsy, Ghey stuff that bugged me cause it ruined the
epicness of the film and that I couldn't get into Amelie for the same
reason, you took it personal----so invested in thoese films that I was
somehow insulting you personally.

Strangly, the other poster on that thread disagreed with your thesis
in your post-----the Paths of Glory point, but likes the movie---so
then you commiserated with whoever that was. That is typical and
wacky.

Then when I read your book reviews on certain books you took it
personal when I expressed my peronal feelings about intellectualizing
on Kubrick films in that way---which I think is pretentious and
conspiratorial---even though I have complimented some of your reviews
and quite a few of your write ups.

With you it is all of nothing.

You are so fragile that me criticizing the point of view expressed in
a book you like, is a criticism of YOU, not that author and you
become unhinged and start calling names..

You escalate, start calling names and when I try to reason with you
and restate my opinions you continue to escalate. Then your joined at
the hip gang buddys, join in and at that point I can either sink to
your level or ignore it. generally I would just plonk. Since my Time
Warner Server stopped it's news server I am stuck on google unless I
want to pay for this abuse, which I don't, but I can't plonk you with
google groups.

Some time ago, when I suggested people without alot of cash. should
spend money on better computers rather then focusing on spending money
upgrading DVD players and transient disc formats, etc. for minimal
improvement, then the obvious technical impoverishment rears it's
ugly head and I am flamed again. I hope all the less financially
secure, are now enjoying their broken, outdated computers and TV
systems.

If I start a thread like this, re-edits on Youtube thread, followed
with insane and nutty attacks as though I think these re-edits are the
holy grail. You lack the basics of human civility. You are really
full of yourselves.

You nasty people are the washed out flotsam that washed up on the
shore of a ravaged AMK.

Fine don't start a blog, You apparently, really have nothing to
say.....or do for that matter.

Reviewers and critics, review because they can't do. The deeper the
bullshit in the review, the more they are unable to do and here on
AMK the bullshit, can't do, is so thick, even kids making silly re-
edits are more creative


I may be 61 years old but I am far more youthful then you sourpuss
nasty cunkheads.

You didn't like this, Boaz?
http://youtu.be/p6RzJFwDE_8
Isn't that more in the nature of a multi-film trailer for some
imaginary or putative Kubrick Film Season, whether on TV or in a
theatre or at a film festival? At that level it may have some merit,
but otherwise it seems like just another example of, confirmation of,
machinic permutation, postmodern pastiche, and iconic reductivism for
purposes of instant consumption and gratification, or in this case,
the hedonistic treadmill of dionysian nihilism (the only 'sense' or
suturing deriving from the editing/cuts in rhythm to the soundtrack,
with sequences of cuts 'themed' by the repetition of similar dramatic
moments from each film).
Yes, that's exactly what it is. A post modern pastiche in which a
bunch of Kubrick moments are taken out of context, strung together and
presented as a bravura showreel.
But what's the difference between this and what Jan Harlan does at the
beginning of his documentary? Harlan takes Kubrick's filmography,
selects several striking images, and hits us with a loud montage. This
is Kubrick, Harlan says. Powerful images, memorable compositions and
neat music. Harlan then proceeds to reduce Kubrick's art to a series
of soundbites.
The fact is, any homage to Kubrick, no matter how well intentioned,
reduces his work. In the Bible, God orders his followers to never
construct images of him. To do so would reduce his glory and
magnificance. After all, how can a mere replica ever hope to convey
the greatness of God?
You're arguing likewise. To reproduce Kubrick, dilutes the meaning of
Kubrick. It reduces Kubrick to a mere object. A false idol to look
upon. And I agree with you. But how do you distinguish between
celebrating a director and reducing his work?
90 percent of all Kubrick fans already love him for fairly superficial
reasons. They love him for his style, his imagery and his "accessible
artyness". They celebrate Kubrick through montages like this, which,
essentially ammount to nothing more than bombastic, masturbatory
images.
To the 10 percent or so who really delve deeper into Kubrick, we
celebrate him through conversations like these. Through articles,
contemplation, books and countless essays. Like the scholars who
transcribed the Bible, we approach Kubrick through the mind and the
written word.
But the masses need their Kubrick iconography, their silly fan vids
and their montages. They've never read Kubrick. Most don't care to.
The best case scenerio is that vids like these seduce young viewers,
and hopefully, through time, lead them to something more meaingful.
What you're really rallying against is a Clockwork future in which art
has lost the power to kill. In which all art has been reproduced,
chopped up and spat back out to the point that it loses all value.
This is already happening. It will get worse.
The only way to fight it is to impose sanctions on your own art. Thou
shalt not reproduce this, least you feel the wrath of copyright
infringement.
Oyyyy, what's Life but a series of "bombastic, masturbatory
images"? Up with their dresses, down with their Mietzses (on DVD, bog
bless), simply having a wunderbar "Tommy My Tommy" time. Und kinder,
stifle thy chuckling derision for Our Stan loved the little couch
jumper, he really did. Valkrye Mapotherplatz for Saturnalia!

Too bad that in your "free time" you can't do something more original
than to take a pivotal scene from a great film and reduce it to a
cheap gay joke.
Perhaps if you were to read some of the comments on this thread more
carefully (beyond the personal attacks that have flooded it) you would
see that the major criticism is aimed at the lack of originality in
these videos.
I suppose it's about as 'original' as 'creative shopping': going, for
instance, to a store to have film images jumble-printed on a T-Shirt

If "2001" is your "favorite" film, why do this? It is like painting a
moustache on the Mona Lisa, like putting a fig leaf on Adam in the
Sistine Chapel ceiling painting; like putting a disco or rap beat to
Beethoven's 9th Symphony.
And all those 'alterations' have already been done too - many, many
years ago.

Duchamp - as part of his wider Dadaist project critiquing the
bourgeoise gallery system - did indeed paint a moustache on the Mona
Lisa. Duchamp's "L. H .O. O. Q," from 1919:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.html?curid=3719796

Duchamp's addition of the rude inscription LHOOQ, when read out loud
in French sounds like "Elle a chaud au cul" (translating to "she has a
hot arse" as a manner of implying the woman in the painting is in a
state of sexual excitement and availability). This was intended as a
Freudian joke, referring to Leonardo's alleged homosexuality.
According to Rhonda R. Shearer, the apparent reproduction is in fact a
copy partly modelled on Duchamp's own face. And later, Salvador Dalí,
famous for his pioneering surrealist work, painted Self portrait as
Mona Lisa in 1954.

And various Vatican ecclesiastics in the past did indeed cover up the
naughty bits in the Sistine Chapel with assorted fig-leaf impressions:
shortly before Michelangelo's death the nude figures were censored,
their sexes draped in cloth by an extra layer of paint. Or maybe it
was just the first occurance of a 'continuity error' ....

Finally, in the early 1970s, soft-rock retro band Electric Light
Orchestra (ELO) screwed up Beethovan's 5th by demanding that he 'roll
over' to their adolescent guitar wankfests.

What I always find hilarious are the people who will spend a fortune
for a t-shirt with their favorite baseball, football or basketball
team on it. They've just paid good money to wear a billboard that
advertises the team. If one is going to do that, shouldn't that person
be PAID to do it, instead of paying the team (since that's where most
of the money eventually goes to for licensing purposes)?

I don't fault Dali, at least he distinguished himself with other

winking at the camera for LIFE Magazine long ago.

I remember that one. They incorporated the 5th (instead of taking the
5th), whereas Chuck Berry didn't have to do that, nor did George
Harrison when The Beatles did their version. The Chuck Berry version
still kicks ass over all the other versions.

But it least isn't as offensive as listening to "Hooked on Classics,"
which should be considered a violation of the Geneva Conventions with
its stomach-churning use of classical music with a disco beat. What's
next, setting T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" to
rap? ("In the room the women come and go/Talking of Michaelangelo...")

Roll over Chuck Berry and The Beatles they're rockin' in two by two!

Anyway I thought Boaz was referring to that rotten disco/pop track "A
Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy (1976 "Trombones in the Big
Parade!) I'd much prefer a fifth of Jack Daniels meself!

"They were followed by rows and rows of the finest virtuosos,
the cream of every famous band."

I wonder if you even understood the subtext of the original scene.
Actually, I pieced it together from just about every scene set on
Discovery, especially the audio, but I assume you mean the scene that
most of the video came from, with Dave, Frank, and HAL discussing the
second transmission from Mission Control questioning HAL's prediction.

The subtext of that was scene fairly obvious: HAL won't admit he could
be wrong, and the men are afraid to confront him directly. They
manufacture an excuse to talk behind HAL's back. Presumably it's out of
a vague sense of social awkwardness, since it doesn't occur to either of
them at the time (not until the last scene before intermission) that
they're "not sure how he'd feel" about being disconnected, since no 9000
computer has ever been disconnected before.

There's an interesting all-or-nothing assumption there that may reflect
1968 attitudes toward computers: either a 9000 computer is 100%
reliable, or it's out of control and has to be disconnected. I've now
lived through the real year 2001, and I don't recall ever hearing anyone
say "I heard there was a known bug in Microsoft Word, so I stopped using
it and went back to typing things up on a typewriter."

Is that the subtext you meant?

Is that all there is? What's your point?
It could be argued that entertainment is reason enough, but it does have
a few other points that could be argued to almost be artistic merit. I
don't expect to convince you, but here goes:

* Experimenting with what can be done in a new medium. I did the audio
in 1997-98, starting in February 1997. HAL became operational on
January 12, 1997 according to the book (1992 in the movie), so it's
interesting to see what can be done with a real 1997 computer compared
to the science fictional one who was humanlike but could only display
wireframe graphics. I wonder if it occurred to Clarke and Kubrick that
it might be possible for HAL to edit the message from Mission Control
that reported that HAL was in error.

* One of the interesting things about the movie, looking back at it from
the perspective of the decade in which it was set, is that it predicted
a lot of technological change (in directions different from what
happened, but that's my previous point) but no social change, from what
little we glimpsed. Consider race and gender: the astronauts were all
white males, just like Apollo, as were the pilots of the Earth-moon
vehicles, while the commercial spacecraft had female stewardesses. (And
as I write this in the real year 2008, the U.S. is about to decide
between a black President or a female Vice President.) The movie didn't
touch on sexuality at all, but the assumption would have been that only
heterosexual men would have been chosen. I think there was a version of
the story, published in The Lost Worlds of 2001, that explicitly says
that they chose only single men without serious girlfriends for the long
voyage, and one astronaut jokes that the only other screening was that
he has no history of "cannibalistic or homosexual tendencies or
postnasal drip". So I'm making the point that social attitudes shifted
between 1968 and 2001 or 2008. Things that were unthinkable then are
now merely controversial or even old-hat.

* In the movie, they've entered another age where men embark on voyages
that isolate them for months, even years. Some interpret the first few
scenes aboard Discovery (including the tanning scene, from which I made
the incriminating picture) as showing the loneliness of the voyage. It
was expected in 1968 that by choosing an all-male crew and screening out
"deviants", they could avoid any possibility of sexual tension. (That
same assumption might be behind the controversy over homosexuality in
the U.S. military.) All experience shows otherwise: it seems to be
natural for isolated heterosexual men to have sex anyway ("situational
homosexuality"). As I have HAL say about it, "This sort of thing has
cropped up before."

* Frank's response to that in my spoof is a line that I think 99% of
people who view it will hear as indicating a romantic bond to Dave.
This shows something very interesting about how people understand
speech, and what it would take to design HAL to understand speech. You
see, unlike a couple of other audio clips that I altered, I didn't touch
that line at all. Frank made exactly those same vocal sounds in the
movie, and 99% of the people watching the movie would unhesitatingly
transcribe that as something other than "I love Dave". We don't
understand how our own mental abilities work, so how could we ever
create HAL?

* One more thing. I don't know if anyone will notice from the spoof,
but in making the video portion I realized that it's true what they say:
Kubrick, in directing or editing the film, deliberately made Frank and
Dave as expressionless as possible, whether to make HAL seem more human
or for whatever reason. I really had to dig to find a few frames where
the men are sort of smiling. Dave attempts a disarming
we-believe-you-and-are-not-conspiring-against-you smile, while Frank's
is an
I-know-it's-ridiculous-to-consider-the-possibility-of-computer-error
smile. I was commenting on the often-remarked coldness of the
characters in the original movie when I moved Dave's line "Well, he acts
like he has genuine emotion" to refer to Frank instead of to HAL, and
tried to make it come across a joke between the men.

If "2001" is your "favorite" film, why do this?
An interesting question in general about take-offs. I don't care to get
into it right now, but if you were under the impression that people only
spoof the works that they dislike, you'll find there are a lot of
counter-examples.

Maybe when you can show us something that distinguishes Ken F.
Vermithrall (if that *is* your real name)
At the risk of starting a thread arguing about whether anything
worthwhile has ever been written under a pseudonym, I have to admit it
is not.

here are some re-edits I've seen
There are also several of my favorite: 2001.  My own remix of it is a
little different than all the others I've seen, in that I remixed single
frames and small segments of audio.

After the flame-war on this thread I'm afraid to ask what people think
of it.  But modern technology didn't exactly make that one "easy", more
like "possible", to do in one's free time.
I think it's funny. Silly can be good.. Good quality image.

How dare you paint a moustache on the Mona Lisa...:)

ALERT ALERT Social Disorientation!
