So now we know why Damien Hirst made this:

Hooray!

Here's Wikipedia on the actual crystal skull phenomenon:

So go nuts.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 10 September 2007 03:06 (7 years ago) Permalink

Don't forget the last Mastodon record. Here's the relevant excerpt from the decibel interview:

"My original idea was that getting to the top of Blood Mountain and obtaining the crystal skull, you would put the crystal skull inside your own head and eliminate the reptile brain, the primitive brain that turns you into a wild beast or brings out that evil in you. Like, for example, when you’ve drank a lot of alcohol,” he laughs."

Okay, now you have me imagining Mastodon doing the Indy theme in my head. And this is not a bad thing.

(I actually have a bad ass Indiana Jones and the Temple of doom poster framed on my wall. My least favorite of the films, but the poster is cool. I am going to see if I can dig it up. Be back in a sec.)

I take it you mean the title and not Jeff's poster (which is indeed great, I still remember seeing that one at movie theaters and getting impatient for it).

Ned Raggett, Monday, 10 September 2007 03:20 (7 years ago) Permalink

exactly. there is no question that the sword represents his cock

Machete, technically. It's a machete that represents his cock.

whatever it is it makes the vadge look like that limply hanging whip when he's done

Jimmy The Mod Awaits The Return Of His Beloved, Monday, 10 September 2007 03:27 (7 years ago) Permalink

Oh, so the whip represents his good-natured affability I suppose?

Oilyrags, Monday, 10 September 2007 03:29 (7 years ago) Permalink

no. see previous post.

John Hurt, the new ungrateful Alec Guinness:

"I enjoyed working with Steven hugely, and we had a great cast. I just wish we'd had something of fabulous interest between each other to act!"

"George is a bit socially crippled, really. Not good with people. So I just left him alone."

We looked into it and there were various things about it — like the time I had to be on set — where I thought, "No, this isn't going to work out." But then I was advised by everybody that it'd be a good thing to do.

gabbneb, Thursday, 20 December 2007 21:20 (6 years ago) Permalink

I said, "Well, I need to have a little bit of previous knowledge even if God is doing it." So they sent a courier over with the script from Los Angeles, gave it to me at three o'clock in the afternoon in London, collected it again at eight o'clock in the evening, and he returned the next day to Los Angeles. So that was an expensive read.

Dr Morbius, Thursday, 20 December 2007 21:24 (6 years ago) Permalink

Great short interview in any event. Hurt should write an autobiography if he hasn't already!

Indy doesn't look very rough and ready in this shot, his trousers are far too clean for a start.

wtf lucas.

George Lucas — I was thinking that this old guy could have been his mentor. He could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was eleven.

Lawrence Kasdan — And he was forty-two.

G — He hasn't seen her in twelve years. Now she's twenty-two. It's a real strange relationship.

Steven Spielberg — She had better be older than twenty-two.

G — He's thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve. It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time.

S — And promiscuous. She came onto him.

G — Fifteen is right on the edge. I know it's an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she's sixteen or seventeen it's not interesting anymore. But if she was fifteen and he was twenty-five and they actually had an affair the last time they met. And she was madly in love with him and he...

S — She has pictures of him.

You know, I just watched "Temple of Doom" again for the first time in ages, and I was wondering: if the Thugees can hypnotize people with their magic blood and have voodoo dolls that work, and if the sacred stones glow during their sacrifice ceremonies ... then doesn't that legitimize their evil supernatural magic power, and sort of imply it's the villagers who are misusing this magic, intrinsically evil power?

The metaphysics of the Indiana Jones movies is very perplexing

Didn't know until yesterday that Temple of Doom was a prequel.

The part of my personality that's still eleven years old thinks that's big news and wants to talk to people about this.

also the part of me that thinks the coolest part about Blade Runner is the "is he an android?" discussion and the part of me that desperately wants to know if Bond is one man or five different guys who go by the same code name James Bond.

Yeah wow that last article is intense. I never realized what a horrible person Indiana Jones is.

Of course, he's a cartoon though!

Does anyone else feel any poignancy in the Belloq/Marion relationship, culminating in his upset at her being tossed into the snake pit with Indy, or have I just watched Raiders so many times at this point that now I'm only looking for new things?

The Butthurt Locker (cryptosicko), Saturday, 3 August 2013 18:13 (1 year ago) Permalink

saw Temple Of Doom around midnight on an *actual cinema* at a festival last week at very loud volume with a whooping, cheering crowd. it's scarier than i recall! the bit where they force him to drink from a skull in the Temple and all that stuff.. real intense. i'm surprised there wasn't much more of a fuss made back in the day about the horror aspect of a kids film, being as it was a PG over here. maybe there was a fuss made and i forget?

piscesx, Saturday, 3 August 2013 19:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

Well, it (and Gremlins) started the PG-13 rating.

The Butthurt Locker (cryptosicko), Saturday, 3 August 2013 20:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, there was total fuss.
