Not Sweet

Otto Murhl - Action - Military Training (1967)

Otto Muehl died two days ago, from Parkinson’s disease. Complicated guy.

Here’s an online copy of DuĊĦan Makavejev’s Sweet Movie (1974), which features Muehl and his commune. (They show up about an hour in.)

      thank you for this!

      Whoa… meen-weak prank (or whatever) just disappeared. I think I’d regret trying to conceal having said something regrettable even more than I’d regret having said it.

      Me, too, deadgod. But I seem to inspire posts getting deleted.

      I guess this post can now become the comments thread for Mike’s deleted post? That would only be appropriate because I first met Mike at a screening I held of Sweet Movie, on 6 December 2002.

      I emailed Mike asking what’s up. (Not saying he deleted the post.) FWIW, I can still see all my comments at Disqus.

      Mine are visible at disqus, too–for the moment. Screen shots (whatever they are)… which gimmick coulda/woulda/shoulda been employed with that tweet?

      ->correct spelling-> Anyhoo, <-correct spelling<- so you're a bi chick. Unbeatable combo.

      Careful, deadgod. Don’t go stroking my cock!

      And I am a bi chick. I am also an anywho. Although most days I feel like a paramecium.

      why was it deleted?
