Journal: Werewolf Communion [Week of July 30]

August 5, 2012

This weekend I attended a party where the drink of choice was communion wine. The standards for sacramental wine are different than consumer wine, which is why — perhaps naively — I didn’t think you could purchase it online. Apparently you can, but it’s really just wine made to altar wine standards — grapes only and “uncorrupted.” True altar wine is not sold to the general public. Angelica wine is the most popular altar wine. It’s a sweet, high-alcohol dessert wine that is believed to originate in Los Angeles, produced by Franciscan missionaries. You can buy a consumer variety over here.

At the same party, I ended up talking to a man who believes he’s a werewolf. So, that happened.

The Colonial Theatre

I paid a visit to The Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, which hosted its first show in 1903. Scenes from The Blob were filmed there. The balcony is still open to patrons.

 

James Bond

I’ve been writing a James Bond column for Movies.com and was excited to spot these Bond girl makeup tutorials from Sam and Nic of Pixiwoo fame. Their videos are always beautifully shot, and the artistry is admirable. I don’t wear nearly as much makeup (or smear glue stick on my face, ouch), but I always pick up a few things to try out and learn about new products. They love recreating theatrical pop culture looks.

Journal: “Tales of Travelers” [Week of June 20]

* Mike Shiflet’s Llanos has been in heavy rotation. He’s playing at Vox Populi June 27.

Nick Cave’s rejected Gladiator 2 script: “Following the success of Gladiator, released in 2000, Crowe and Scott invited Cave to write a script for the sequel. They hoped that the macabre musician could find a creative solution to Gladiator 2′s main hurdle – that Maximus, Crowe’s character, dies at the end of the first film.”

* Writerly things:



* Corner of a miniature interior I created. Using it as backdrop for a new video.

* Food alchemy: baked sweet potato secretions and beets

Grzegorz Cisiecki shared a link to his film with me recently. Here’s his short called Smoke. Let him know what you think in the comments section.

Thanks to UbuWeb for reposting this Negativland vid on Twitter. Hadn’t heard this one in a long time.
