Feeds Broken

Feeds are broken on this site if you’re accessing them via, e.g., http://www.goesping.org/wp-rss.php rather than http://www.goesping.org/feed.  There’s a bug about this: http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/6460  but applying the patch didn’t actually fix it, at least not yet…

Stupid wordpress.

UPDATE: fixed.  Had to regenerate the .htaccess file.

Wir Tanzen Ado’ Hynkel

I’m the only person I know who really digs Laibach. (Joe introduced me to it, of course, so he is the Ur-Laibach fan, but I don’t know if he digs it quite so much these days as back around 1990 or so…) I keep trying to share it with people, and they keep hating it.

Besides their original stuff, Laibach has covered:

One of their more accessible and recent songs, is Tanz Mit Laibach, which as the title of this blog entry notes, calls out in its lyrics to the Charlie Chaplin film The Great Dictator…

So what’s not to like?

Yeah, I know. Next week I’ll get over it, and have an unhealthy obsession with some other weird artist… But Laibach will still be their own special kind of awesome.

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead

Julian Marsh (Hoffman) is an out of work ladies man who lands a job directing a bizarre adaption of Hamlet. After casting his best friend (Lemche) and his ex-girlfriend (Aoki) in the show, Julian finds himself in the middle of a two thousand year old conspiracy that explains the connection between Shakespeare, the Holy Grail and some seriously sexy vampires. It turns out that the play was actually written by a master vampire named Theo Horace (Ventimiglia) and it’s up to Julian to recover the Grail in order to reverse the vampire’s curse… If only being undead wasn’t so much God-damned fun!

[From Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead]

Sweet. Now that Zombie is the New Vampire, Vampires have been freed from the heavy burden of hipness and can be part of a whimsical little film.
