I highly recommend this article to anyone curious about emerging independent art forms and music that challenge the status quo. This band was at war with the police, night clubs and even their own fans.
Also highly recommended for anyone interested in the transitions and happenings that occurred between each of the three original singers leading up to the cultural icon Henry Rollins.
Synthetic teenagers of the future will don the Black Flag logo on their bodies made of bolts and screws or whatever one day. The work this band put into their art resulted in something that is now indestructible.... For better or worse (search Henry Rollins & Cyndi Lauper perform Rise Above).
Mancini can justifiably speak foul of this coup d’eDoll. Although portrayed as quite the bastard, it is evident that Chucky is no such thing, Mancini loves him and has for 30 years. Hollywood will repackage anyone’s creation and put it on sale if they legally can, we see this all the time and often wish we hadn’t!
But I must regretfully inform you Mr Mancini, Child’s Play (2019) was great! Although not as malicious, ugly or foul mouthed as your devil doll, the new Chucky situates himself well in the post postmodern techno commentary not unlike that of the great Black Mirror. My wife and I immediately revisited the first three films, purchasing the second Child’s Play on Amazon. I hope a couple pennies went your way.
“Don’t fuck with the Chuck”, but if you do, do it well enough!
It is an amazing feat that someone can physically deliver a meal from a kitchen across town straight to your door? Seamless should stop fostering the notion that anyone sitting on their ass is entitled to anything more than that, especially when proper compensation is not even required. Great read.
