Topical, if Referential

James Hong in 1986 basically playing what John Carpenter looks like in 2005

The ever-elusive Erick Bieritz has a Stycast on John Carpenter up today, which is a little uncanny given the last post's reference to The Thing. It's always tough to get into the Classic Burns Monotone reading other people's scripts (which always look prettier when you make the leap to mentally retranslating the words onto the printed page), but whatever. I was never Totally Wild about Carpenter's music, but I think this is a pretty good selection, even if he witholds the "Escape from New York" theme until the end. When it comes to horror soundtracks, I always enjoyed the primal synth-crust of Fabio Frizzi more; perhaps I'll have to do a little mining for another similarly-themed Stycast. A little disappointed by the omission of Carpenter's steamy perm-rock version of "Big Trouble In Little China" performed with his blazered pals in the Coupe DeVilles; a minor flaw, overall.

Hey, some of us are big fans of the Classic Burns Monotone.

"Big Trouble In Little China" contains some of my favorite lyrics! I should think about those key phrases more often and with greater depth of focus. Run into the mystic night, friends.

I noticed that you played the ISB on yr Stycast. I was gonna drop a track by C.O.B. on my next 'cast, but I may have to substitute my fav 5000 Spirits song. Or I'll play both with the Nina Simone stuff and we'll have a revival.

Great fact & important for sure, but isn't it important to remember that Mariah's got 15 years and a shit-ton of money behind her? Oh yeah, and I forgot to beat you up about The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter/5000 Spirits thing when you were here. I just remembered. DAMN. Next time (softens palm w/fist in slow, repetitive motions).
