Inspiration for the new album

My dad as a teenager, back when he was a trouble maker. Age 17

Willem Dafoe in his first role, The Loveless, 1982

Rebels Of Neon God, 1992

A film by Taiwan Based Malaysian Director Tsai Ming Liang, Depicting 2 teenage delinquents in Taipei in the early 90's.

The keyboard synth heavy 80's score along with the motorcycle night drifting scene haunts me.


  1. impeccable taste and inspiring inspiration ! Hope Slim and LuLu end up in one of your short films one day..... looks like 2010 will be a year of good work from you . Happy new year A.
    love from J

  2. thanks J.

    send my regards to the rest of the family. happy new year.

    Its gonna be a good one this year. I can feel it.

  3. love the loveless<33333333

    looks like some damn good inspiration here

  4. I'm surprised you even know it, not a lot of people have heard of it. Been really into 80's recreation of the 50's for a while.

    Its so unrealistic, and overtly romanticized that it becomes something else entirely.

    btw, you need to update dem photos more lil' girl. people like see them.

  5. that and grease 2 make up some of my fave flicks but i barely know any 50s revival past that. they are quite hilarious but so enticing. i really love them, any more recommendations?

    Oh and i know, i know. i'm working on it!!

  6. beside the obvious ones that were huge in the 80's (i.e. back to the future, american graffiti) I really liked repo man. although not really 50's related, but the overall mood and soundtrack was heavily inspired by it. highly recommend it.

    here are a few more other ones worth mentioning in the 80's/50's revival:

  7. oh of course! love those too! except i've never seen this matt dillon one. looks great i'll check it out
    thanks dood.
