The Delmonas were a vocal group that were backed by The Milkshakes (which included Billy Childish, who would write the Delmonas original songs, like this one.) Same concept of the Thee Headcoatees, but before them. Though I do think one of the gals from The Delmonas did end up being in Thee Headcoatees as well. I probably could have said that this song came from an Asian country in the 1960s and you may have believed me. Or am I wrong?:)

So a while back, I sold a bunch of my out of print VHS for cash and shelf space in hopes that they would be released on DVD eventually. One of the tapes was Over The Edge, the teen angst movie from 1979 that was based on a real event. Thankfully, it is out on DVD now, and I have a copy. I watched it again recently, and I was surprised at how well it holds up for a "teen" movie. There's only one scene that made me cringe a little due to cheesiness. These are some of the most bad-ass group of 14-year-olds you'll see on film. It's got it all: Drug dealing and usage (not in a corny way though), boozing, car stealing and chases, destruction of property, big belt buckles, and a soundtrack that includes The Cars, The Ramones, and Cheap Trick. And it has one of those bleak, unresolved endings like, say, The Graduate. This movie doesn't try to be cool, it just is cool. So Tim Hunter co-wrote Over the Edge and he also wrote and directed The River's Edge. He so missed the boat by not making an Over The Edge Kids Vs. The River's Edge Kids movie. The thought probably never crossed his mind, hmph!

Ahhh, the teenager's sanctuary: His bedroom with a turntable and mega-headphones.


14-year-old business hash deal





Riot time!

still have yet to see that. though it's on my list of must-sees. perhaps i'll bump it up on the n-flix queue.

The boy and I share a Netflix que, and no matter how much we rent and burn, there's still always 100+ DVDs on the que. Sick! But yeah, bump this one up in the que:)
wrongeyedjesus on October 1st, 2006 06:54 pm (UTC)
my queue is ridiculous. i have about 462 at the moment. i figure it will take me about 5 years to even come close to seeing all of these films. maybe longer considering that i always add things. i'm such a junkie.

ps, love the icon!

did you know the netflix que limit is 500? i learned that the hard way...
nurse_marbles: Arsenic!nurse_marbles on October 2nd, 2006 04:54 am (UTC)
Holy crap. And I thought our que was bad...
wrongeyedjesus on October 5th, 2006 11:43 pm (UTC)
yeah, same here. i've learned the hard way like, 5 times.

if you create another profile, do you get 500 more movies?
wrongeyedjesus on October 7th, 2006 07:39 pm (UTC)

I had to make that icon myself from the Rock n Roll Circus DVD. There's no pics on the web of Keith and his sexy eye patch, the shame!

Love the Delmonas song... never heard them before.
I've been on a huge teen-trash movie kick lately. Enjoyed such films as Foxes, 'Thirteen', 50's reefer scare films.. and a lot of the O.C.
You've probably seen foxes but it's good in the same 70s white kid way... and has an intense Scott Baio character skateboard scene
nurse_marbles: Cool Ghoulnurse_marbles on October 2nd, 2006 04:48 am (UTC)
Actually, I still need to see Foxes. I'll probably dig it. All of the characters Jodie Foster played in the 1970s were tough bad-asses, even in the 70s version of Freaky Friday (I really like that one)

I love your posts!

How are the kitties? We are in the throes of saving another one. It NEVER ENDS. Animals always need our help (because people suck my ass). I have found out about a kitty (he is Orange and SWEEET! and I have me him -- his people moved out and left him 3 blocks down the street (PEOPLE FUCKING SUCK MY ASS!).

We have an appointment to get hin fixed (and he has balls the size of PLUMBS!) and then (I'm totally hoping) that he CALMS DOWN and his life gets GOOD. Marilyn (the cat lady that we know who has a cat shelter) said she'd put him on petfinder.com and try to get him a home.

Or we could keep him.

(did you hear Wiggy screaming in the background?)

Haha

Man, I totally forgot about this movie, but I watched it every day when it was on HBO... Off to the video store ASAP!

Dang, it looks like a cool movie!

great movie
I remember that movie from when I was very young. The lsd scene was freaky. I remember being fascinated in how bad these kids could be.
