Independent British distributors Arrow Video have confirmed that they are planning to release on Blu-ray the Stray Cat Rock films. All five classic exploitation films, starring Meiko Kaji, will arrive on the UK market later this year.
Thanks to Bluray.com for the heads up!
I am now officially on the hunt for either a multi-region Blu-ray player or one that plays Region B discs.
Arrow have also done a blu-ray for Lady Snowblood, and Blind Woman’s Curse is coming next month, so by all means support them.
I know I’ll be replacing my SCR bootlegs, even though I don’t have a blu-ray player yet. Finally get to see that last one.
Émilie Simon - Mue
Here’s something exciting that slipped under our radar: Émilie Simon’s sixth studio album, Mue.
The French electronic genius has even released a lead single - ”Menteur” - and an accompanying music video, although, as pleasant as the combination are, they’re a little more glossy, poppy and bland than we’re accustomed to.
Simon has made a name for herself as the crafter of ornate, lush, botanical electronic and orchestral works that straddle the line between minimalist classical music and synth pop. Let’s hope there’s some of this on Mue, released in France on the 17th of March.
The following is taken from The Omega Geek's blog at ( http://www.theomegageek.com/blog-news/2014/2/11/a-simple-timeline-of-events.html ). It is a timeline of all the incredibly fucked-up goings on at Project Million Entertainment, a sham of a company that should be avoided at all cost, as this document clearly shows :
**-NOTE-** This timeline was originally as a joint effort back in November, when we were considering full disclosure. We tabled it as the holidays/MAGFest meant there were more important things in our lives than dealing with a sociopath and his craven son. This is the first in a series.
Total armchair psychology here, but from what I’ve read about Gerald Demers it looks to me like a big old case of narcissistic personality disorder. Which is all kinds of awful and confusing for people to deal with. You’re in conflict with someone who cannot process conflict like a human being.
No… this is wrong! Didn’t I fall into hell? This can’t be hell! Surrendering my body to the devil, I should have become a wrinkled hag! My hair should be full of hateful snakes, my skin should be the color of a vile frog’s! And my blood should be burning with the jet black flames of my grudge..! A lie. This form, it’s a lie! I’ve been tricked! I wanted to become a terrifying woman, one that just a look from, would send anyone running. I have to be such a woman! I don’t want to forget my anger and hate!
