I finished the Hendrix doco. I warmed to him to the point of almost liking his music. But he is unbelievably cool. I really like his singing. It's hard to imagine what it must have been like to witness it all. From this point he seems more like a fictional character.

On the hunt for more music on Netflix (slim pickings) I tried to watch Taylor Swift's big stadium concert. I didn't like it. I couldn't tell if she was singing or not. Turned it off after 20 mins. I don't like her fringe. Some of the music was good. Some very involved arrangements, pop prog.
Is the Muscle Shoals documentary still up there? It's really good.

On the hunt for more music on Netflix (slim pickings)



When you consider there's a documentary about every little happening ever in music these days,it's pretty disapointing. Although at the same time I'm pretty bored with talking heads with rose tinted glasses type documentaries.

Vice, the one where Christian Bale plays Dick Cheney.. I thought this was very middling - good mimicry and make-up but it felt like most of these 'true life' biopic movies end up doing, dialogue that doesn't feel authentic because it's mostly about potted plot/character progression. I think they were going for satire / farcical comedy but it isn't consistently funny enough to pull that off, the attempts at clever-clever 4th wall breaking humor just irked me.

The Fyre festival documentary. Fucking hell!
Yeah watched it last night. So many total fucking douches.
Walking around taking selfies and complaining. The punters were almost as bad as the absolute girls running the show (into the ground).

That was the Netflix one^.

Going to hunt down the other (better?) one tonight/tomorrow

I didn’t know there was another one, I watched the one on Netflix. It was really enjoyable, pure schadenfraude.

Watched that Fyre festival documentary too.
Can't believe people trusted an organiser who has trouble pronouncing "crayon", and a rapper who's biggest hit is him boasting about his timekeeping skills

The 34th. A doco about the fight for marriage equality in Ireland. A good look at the behind-the-scenes of the fight. It is very one sided and portrays the NO sides as one dimensional monsters. Which in some ways is satisfying but in others a small bit mean.
It's nice to see this on Netflix. I hope it is international as Ireland comes across well. Full of smart intelligent people.

I haven't seen it in years. Still a really good movie but a little creakier than I'd remembered. The scenes with Alexi Sayle and Michael Elphick could have come straight from The Sweeney.
The forensic detective work was probably innovative at the time but now seems really dated. It's also fascinating to recall just how fucked up life behind the iron curtain was not so long ago.
Still very enjoyable though. It's on Netflix.

INCAPACITANTS documentary movie (its only around 40 mins), which is on Youtube. It was good, awkward, kinda bootleg and low key, much like the band themselvezs. Was cool watching this, though, I got to see Mikawa play in Tokyo last year, and it brought back happy memories.
