During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.”
I can respect that.
dude, my son is like gonna exist pretty soon… like zuune!
Gay Black Adam (shock deformity and amputee) is the G.G. Allin of El Paso.
He tried to fight me at Lowbrow one time and spit on my face and picked me up by my collar when Bat/Caves was playing.
There is also this video that my friend asked him to say happy birthday to Teeth but he was drunk and misunderstood so he said Keith instead.
He is signed with a record label but he hasnt made music in years (that i know of).
There is also this amazing live footage of him.
He has been banned from bars for shoving microphones up his ass.
Also he is gay and homeless and he really thinks fronchies are hot.
Someone made this documentary on him and you can see it on youtube.
I do not know where he is but i hope he is ok because he is very important.
idk why i deleted this.
i have a majority of the shock deformity albums and i’ve always wanted to make a bandcamp of his stuff and give him the proceeds, but i haven’t…
i paid a friend to record the last shock deformity album, but adam wouldn’t record it without me buying him a 30 pack. he also asked the guy who recorded it to include a bunch of gay porn sound clips. i submitted the album to a record label in california (run by a really sweet guy) but he wouldn’t take it because the quality was too crummy…
one time i was with adam at a show at a junkyard and he played so loud the power went out and then they kicked adam out and i was walking him to the car carrying his keyboards as the punk kids threw beer cans and bottles at us and i tried to calm adam down
i also paid for a recording of the clap which was a side project adam had…
i remember when all leather came once and i asked justin pearson if he had any footage or recorded music of adam and he was like “uh, idk…”
I went nature walking in the exxpanse the other day …it was pretty chill…
i went hiking today… it was pretty cool… also my sister is a ghost hot-dog….
