The Pitch Review Saturday's Other Major Hipster Show / More Avatar News

Apparently none of the usual media outlets (aside from the LC!) bothered to attend and review Saturday's Surfer Blood show. Perhaps it is even hipper NOT to attend the hippest show of the year. But local Pitch correspondent Nick Spac.k was on hand across the street at the Jackpot for a set by Kid Congo Powers (whose hipster reputation is forever secure due to stints in the Cramps, the Bad Seeds, the Gun Club). Here are a few excerpts of his review:

"I remember standing at the side of the stage with some acquaintances, and we'd look at each other after every song, and say, "Wow." Every song. (One exception: The guitar freakout on "Black Santa" might've gotten a "holy fuck," or at least it did in my notes.)"

"Kid Congo clapped his hands, and glitter appeared everywhere, like magic."

"The band was wearing matching matador outfits. Everyone was dancing and having fun -- hell, I was dancing, and I can count the number of times I've done that sober on...actually, no hands."

Richard: "I knew something was missing from the Surfer Blood gig and I just couldn't quite put my finger on it. Now I know. They weren't wearing matador outfits. Also, why does EVERY single Pitch review have to note whether or not people danced. Is this the sole sign of a successful concert?"

Chip: "Yes."


Perhaps you thought James Cameron might shut up and go away for awhile once he lost to his ex-wife for Best Director/Best Picture and his Avatar finally started dwindling at the box-office. But no, he's still around and saying stupid shit about how his film has "kind of gotten stomped out (in theaters) because of Alice in Wonderland." (USA Today). Lucky for us, Cameron hopes to bring an "enhanced" version of Avatar back to theaters in the fall. We have no idea what this means at the moment. Has he discovered a whole new dimension, somehow?

Also, Cameron hopes to give his former greatest hit, Titanic, the 3-D treatment as well and get it back on the big-screen in 2012, which has led to a wealth of fanboy jokes about seeing Kate Winslet's breasts in 3-D (along with other Winslet films that could be improved with such technology). Here are a few from the AV Club:

George Liquor: "Kate Winslet's 17-year-old mosquito bite boobs wouldn't exactly jump out at you in 3D."

kjb1 says: "If Kate Winslet's breasts are "mosquito bites", I'd love to see what your idea of well-endowed is, George. Are you dating Chesty Laroux? It's nice to see that I'm not the only one who looked at that headline and immediately thought of Naked Kate."

Joseph: "Can't wait to see her armpit hair in The Reader in true 3D the way it was meant to be seen."

Cuntnugget retorts: "Seen enough of Kate's Winslets already. I AM looking forward to seeing Lenny D's little gnome face sinking into a 3D watery grave though."

I vote for Kate Winslet making out with Chesty 4D!

Still disappointed said...

Man, when I rented JUDE, I didn't see the best part b/c it had been watched over and over again until the tape was completely worn out.

Kate Winslet's body ROCKED back then. Not quite the same now, but that's no matter.

Cameron has long been planning to use this AVATAR technology to create 3D porn using dead or aged stars. He's even almost said as much.

holy smoke said...

Great thing about Winslet is, she'll almost always get naked. (decent actor as well).

When Cameron gives us a hardcore 3D sex scene between Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, I'll begin to take him seriously.

Now that she is single, I would rather skip all the technology and have her sit on top of my face!!
