Hidy Ho, fellow Molko-holics. I have a wee bit o' trivia for you. By now I hope every single one of you have viewed "Velvet Goldmine" at least once and if you haven't, you're seriously missing out. Anyhow, in the film, you will recall that Brian plays Malcolm who is the lead singer of the fantastic glam band, The Flaming Creatures. Steve is also in the band as the drummer. Well, imagine my suprise when I, being the dutiful student that I am, was doing my reading on experimental film and found that there is an experimental film from the 60s called, "Flaming Creatures". Apparently it is very controversial and was considered to be quite porn-like, which broke laws back then. I must track this film down and view it. It can't be a coincidence. I would love to know for sure.

muah hah ha

porn, placebo, velvet goldmine and slash

= great post
Why thank you. I thought you would enjoy that. ;)
I don't think it's a coincidence either, because, well, this is Velvet Goldmine we're talking about. If you find it, let us know, because I'd love to know if you can spot a connection.

*loves the pic*
I'll let you know after I watch it. :)
I remember reading an interview or something where Brian said something about it, I can't remember where I found it. Anyway, Brian said that the band they played in Velvet Goldmine was named after a gay porn and I think Stef said he liked it.
actually Bri said it's a 1920's gay porn film, itw here
Cool, I never heard that before. Here I am thinking I've stumbled upon something original. I stand corrected. ;)
I'd heard of that, must be the same itw that May mentioned.

Sigh. Why won't they hug like that anymore... *pouts* You could smell the love in the air ♥
They do. It's just more rare now. :(
apparently tackle is the new hug =D
IMDB has a miniscule amount of info on it: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054880/
IMDB is like my right arm. I adore it so.
