Juanita Parra / Gabriel Parra/ Los Jaivas

The sound of Los Jaivas is the sound of Chile , you listen and feel the music reach in. Gabriel Parra the drummer was sadly killed in a crash and the role went to his daughter Juanita Parra

fictive beat

W/O/M/A/N
gone into abstraction
gitane smoke before the rain,
cello case velvet interior
soft and firm

W/O/M/A/N
breasts and silk once seen on canvas
could not concede to his kisses
or arch of bow
he had to wander

W/O/M/A/N
no more companion
than those strings he manipulated
with fingers callused,
she will not tremor

W/O/M/A/N
as absent as the background
waiting for a taxi,
rain effective conduit
to her misery,
he sheltered the cello
with umbrella
heading to a jazz club

W/O/M/A/N
is the beat
is the tender thrum,
a cello’s true heart
and poets calling,
absinthe and kisses
parted stocking thighs
he had found another
W/O/M/A/N

poem, jazz, beat

Hossein Farjami – Nagmeh Esfahan

dancer 95

violin bow cu through gelatin
as outstretched arm
folding it under her chin
tremor of strings felt in her loins
of love beyond passion
love beyond denial,
for this man much older
who watched damp eyed
each point and step
holding pose for sulfur flash
yet moonlight and day
better illuminated
caught in a dark place
yet so natural
she would ascend
imprinted and recognized
after camera covered away
she danced
knowing now also caught
on paper in charcoal
it may of been the end
but she reached to the future
moving expressively
beyond fantasy

Star Wars lost footage is found

You have to watch and read the piece below

This is the official YouTube page for the complete 30 minute, fully restored EditDroid Laserdisc Return of the Jedi raw footage that I recovered and started to release to the Star Wars community on my Facebook page starting October 23 2013. The decision to release the clips piecemeal and watermarked was to try and generate as much publicity as possible so that the community could be involved and to get public opinion on our side for obvious reasons, and of course to put Star Wars back in the news and not just for Episode VII. The plan worked beyond my wildest dreams!

The footage here is uncropped and in it’s entirety including all off-camera audio with multiple angles of Scene 50 between Luke and Yoda on Dagobah – especially the very important dialogue at 5:10! I have also cleaned up some artifacts and polished up the interlace issues that you get when converting most laserdiscs. I have also upscaled to 1080p so you can view the video as large as possible without serious degradation (the quality of the picture is not HD of course).

The Facebook page received huge amounts of press coverage from all over the world and I would like to thank everyone for their support and kind words. I hope you enjoy this historic find as much as I have. Feel free to discuss the footage on my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/rotjeditdroid

As promised I have compiled the complete footage without any watermarks or text inside the actual video frame but in the outer borders. This is to help those that wish to use the footage in their own fan edits. I respectfully request that if you re-post this footage that you keep the watermarks and credits intact – don’t be “that guy” and cut them out and not give credits just to achieve your own notoriety or because you are some kind of jealous fanboy with a twisted sense of entitlement (yes i’m looking at you Scotty Essex Sr.)

For the true fans out there, I would also ask that you support Adywan’s Star Wars: Revisited project. If you haven’t heard about it and you are a Star Wars fan, your mind is about to be blown:

Song of the Day: Can You Dig It (by Brian Tyler)

Brian Tyler is a very talented composer

Through the Shattered Lens

IronMan3

In continuing the horror detox from this past month we bring to you one of the more fun film music from this past summer’s slew of blockbusters. The latest “Song of the Day” comes courtesy of Brian Tyler’s score for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3.

The first two Iron Man films had their score composed by Ramin Djawadi and John Debney, respectively. The first score was considered one of the finer efforts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe film scores. Djawadi brought a much needed fun tone to set-up the wise-ass persona of billionaire, playboy genius Tony Stark. It also had a very metal and hard rock component to it’s sound that put into the forefront that this was Iron Man.

The second film’s score by John Debney wasn’t as well-received by fans and critics alike. Which just goes to show just how much of a misfire the middle film…
