Oh Wow, Malcolm McLaren Just Died

So it looks like McLaren just passed away, and you can get all of the important details at the usual sources. Now, McLaren is often cited as one of the progenitors of punk, but he's really one of the smartest marketers in all of pop music; the Sex Pistols were originally formed to promote his fashion store, and in his command of the vagaries of selling pop culture to masses we can find so much of the world we live in. All this you can probably find elsewhere; I'm writing this post because I hope this will not get lost in the shuffle:

A series of deeply strange albums in the 1980s, the first (Duck Rock) being a legitimate masterpiece. Stressing dance and pop music, not to mention deeply multi-cultural sensibilities, they couldn't be a thousand miles away from the dressed up classic rock the Sex Pistols sold to the world. Madame Butterfly! Kids, in this day in age, it's that track that seems like punk rock.

I Wanna Be Your Boy

I Wanna Be Your Boy

nnooooo thats such a mistake that flashback 80s stuffs* going to beeee the next top 40

So just in case Eric is right, here's some throwback.

The Expendables!

Here is a trailer for Sylvester Stallone's newest film, THE EXPENDABLES. The concept of this movie is nothing short of amazing. Stallone has used his clout to get the biggest action stars together, even a busy governor with a failing economy. The cast includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Randy Couture (UFC legend), Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and even the late Brittany Murphy has a small role in the film.

If you are into action films, especially ones which have a certain amount of playfulness to them, I would recommend checking out COBRA. It is one of his lesser known films and considered to be a flop, but it really is quite good. (It's also on watch instantly on Netflix.)

I have always been a big fan of Sylvester Stallone, but over the years I have realized that his fan group is pretty small. Frankly, I just don't think people really know his full body of work, or know how to really interpret it. I think the biggest problem people have with Stallone is his franchise films, ie Rocky and Rambo, which he has consistently reverted to throughout his career. But, we have to give him credit, he is an actor/writer/director/producer and was one of the highest grossing actors in the 80's and help define action films as we know them.
