Early Beatles Rock The Spot

The crowd takes a while to warm up,
but once they get goin’,
every lil’ head shake of Paul’s makes ’em squeal.

SeMeN SPeRmS SuPeR SiTe Launch!

Hey Folks,

Here’s my new site, submitted for yer disapproval.

All the content that I was sick of givin’ these soul suckin’ sites for free.

I’ve been slavin’ on it for way too long, and it’s come a long way, thanks to unemployment!

It’s a beta, so I’m still workin’ out lil’ kinks here ‘n there.

If you see anything that you think need fixin’, just hit contact and fire me an email.

I’ll be updatin’ it on the regs, so be sure to check back for more nuggets from the world of SeMeN SPeRmS.

Thanks for all yer support.

Exhausted – John Holmes: The Real Story

Here’s a great documentary about 70’s porn king John C. Holmes entitled
Exhausted – John Holmes: The Real Story
from 1981, pre-the Wonderland murders.
You can see how this influenced Boogie Nights


…and as an added bonus after the doc you get (the edited for YouTube version of)
Tell Them Johnny Wadd Is Here!

Seems like Spike Jonze and the Beastie Boys were inspired by the cracked-out quality for their Sabotage video.

Sid ‘n Nancy on NYC Public Access 1978

“The real Nancy was prettier and softer than Chloe Webb, who portrayed her in film. You can find a series of grainy black-and-white clips of her on YouTube, from an obscure New York cable talk show taped less than a month before her death on October 12. You’re struck by how shockingly close to adolescence she was, chewing a wad of gum and self-consciously flipping her hair; she was only 20 when she died. Sid is next to her: At one point he removes his leather jacket, nearly clocking her in the face with his elbow, as if he’s forgotten she’s there. Seated next to him at a long table are Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys and Cynthia Ross of the B Girls. They’re here, presumably, because punk has been building momentum. Though the Sex Pistols imploded after their disastrous U.S. tour, the biggest bands nurtured in the CBGB scene—Television, Patti Smith, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Blondie—all have record deals, though none has yet scored a hit. Vicious, Bators, and Ross are there as emissaries from a scene the larger world—New York above 14th Street—doesn’t yet understand. Nancy isn’t introduced at the start of the segment. She’s not in a band and clearly doesn’t count.” – New York Magazine The Day Punk Died
