I just saw it and I was wondering if anyone else waited that entire movie to see how they were going to come up with a clever pun for lucy in the sky with diamonds, and as dissapointed when they just had ****ing Bono sing it in the credits. Also got me thinking, can you learn to be an artist, or is it just one of those things you're either born with or you're not? And finally, does anyone else feel like America is on the edge of another cultural revolution? I mean if anytime is ready for a revolution its now right? Just curious to your thoughts. Discuss.

1. I hate bono, he sucks
2. it's not something you're born with, but I believe it's something you develop during a very early age
3. America isn't on the edge of a cultural revolution, we're sill trying to enforce the last one.

I think it was an alright re-make of Romeo and Juliet, with average covers of great songs.
grok it.

SKREAM!

Listen to jazz, it's good for you...

Don't really have anything to say other than Across the Universe is a fantastic movie. One of my all time favorites. Watch it while on shrooms.

My two best friends hated it but I thought it was somewhat decent.I love their version of "Helter Skelter" and I liked "Strawberry Fields Forever",not as much as the original though!

The art direction was amazing, but the story was really thin. I'd be interested to see a stage version.
Listen to mah discs.



And coming soon, THE CLEVER DEVILS VS. THE BLONDES.

yeah, it does seem to lend itself well to a broadway-esque adaptation if there hasn't been one already.

I liked it alot, and am a huge Beatles fan. Revolution was awesome. Also, seeing Lucy's boob = WIN.

I thought it was okay. There was WAY too much auto-tune though

No one believes me when I say that. I got into an argument with my room mate about whether or not you can hear the auto-tune.

You can TOTALLY hear it. Especially on Evan Rachel Wood and on the lead guy sometimes. A bit less so on Bono and some others, but it's almost painful at times.

it was weird to see lucy's boob cuz you know what marilyn manson was doing with that. or probably not. he's even more twisted than the pit. and that's saying something. so you dont kno what he did with that? and auto tune?

That is pretty much exactly how I felt about it. I lost interest in the story pretty quickly, but I finished watching it because I like the music and the art direction. Visually and musically it was pretty sweet.

My age group and younger are all pretty stupid(myself included). If we have a cultural revolution, it would probably be for the wrong reasons.

Also, Across the Universe was kind of a let down. Cool imagery at times, but the movie just screams cash cow.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

It's been awhile since I read his autobiography, but I think he's got a thing for golden showers. The idea that Marilyn Manson peed on that girl from 13 kinda creeps me out. Actually, the movie 13 just creeps me out in general.

everyone is an artist because everything is art.
anything that creates emotion is art, and actually anything that can make you feel emotionless is art too. i see some painters do **** that i think is completely retarded but they're still revered as amazing painters. a dot on a canvas, or a single note playing for hours elicit feelings of curiosity and unease.

therefore everyone is an artist even at birth, and you don't need to have a college degree to prove it which is what a lot of people seem to think.

How the hell is everything art? That's like saying that because everyone writes occasionally, they are a writer. Sometimes I have to do arithmetic, but that doesn't make me a mathematician.

What the hell is with all the hippies in the Pit lately?

Neo-hippies are way worse than scene kids. Scene kids tend to at least know they're stupid, and try not to take part in any real conversation, aside from maybe ones involving art or music. But neo-hippies.. They just annoy the piss out of me.

Everybody's stupid.

Neo-hippies IMO are more useless than regular hippies, due to the fact that hippies didn't get much done during their active period, as any changes quickly reverted, so by being neo-hippies they're going down the same path with the same result.

It's just that you didn't learn from the mistakes.


I'm all for progress, but I wouldn't follow a model that failed.

i wouldn't say that neo-hippies are following the same model for change...rather the same ideologies and values are shared. not sure what you consider defines a neo-hippie, though.
