My Girls Are in Heavy Metal Magazine!!!
« on: October 19, 2010, 12:38:21 AM »
There's a little article about my latest sculpture series in Heavy Metal Magazine this month. It's pretty exciting for me to have my work mentioned in there. HM is a legendary fanboy rag.

Remember the 1981 movie?

That's cool, were you able to get a handful of copies of the magazine to save?

What is Tura Satana? Do you have an image of it?

Tura Satana is best known for starring in Russ Meyer's "Faster Pussycat...Kill! Kill!". This was just a little collectible statue I put out a couple of years ago.

Sometimes I buy extra copies if the article or interview is substantial. But I've collected up a lot over the years and found I don't have any need for the extras other than to send one to mom.

At first I didn’t notice who posted this thread, and during the second it took to load the page I wondered, "What father here is bragging about such a thing!?"
Of course a moment later it all made sense. That's awesome Mark! Really cool. I like the write up.

The term “siren” is interesting to me and I was compelled to look it up for a refresher.
In Greek mythology, a sea nymph, half-woman and half-bird, who was believed to sing beguilingly to passing sailors in order to lure them to their doom on the rocks she sat on
The fact Microsoft Word provides definitions that end in a preposition makes me smile

She's mysteriously HOT! I know of Russ Meyer's but never saw the movie. I will have to check if it's available through Netflix streaming.

Speaking of Heavy Metal...

* I know a South Park episode a few years back spoofed the Heavy Metal movie.

* If there was a Wacky Packages take on HEAVY METAL magazine (maybe for an Old School series), it would be called "HARDLY METAL" or "HEAVY MUDDLE".

Faster Pussycat is an intense flick. It's Meyer's best film. Ironically it has no sex or nudity. But you'll realize this movie came from the land of supercool right from the opening scene. Tarantino can only dream of having written this flick. In fact he was quoted in Entertainment Weekly as saying the actress he would most like to work with was Tura Satana.

I saved it to my queue anyways. Maybe with enough people showing interest they'll go get one.

Russ Meyer's wife has full ownership of his movies. She charges full retail price no matter who orders them. She won't wholesale them to stores. That's why you have to go to specialty shops, ebay and Amazon to find them. Incidentally, she hates Russ's movies and she's letting the negatives rot in a garage somewhere. She wants several million dollars for the rights to his movies and so far nobody is willing to pay.

She'll be dead soon and then we can all see them. Isn't she old?

Not really. Unless you're planning on bumping her off. Russ's Playboy wife died in a plane crash so he remarried to a young lady. I'm not sure who would inherit the rights when she's gone but it could be a good thing for the Russ Meyer brand. I think you can go to Tura Satana's website to buy copies of Faster Pussycat and she signs them too.
