Your first taste of a labor of love:
This documentary tells the story of the early keyboard-based origins of modern sampling from Harry Chamberlin’s seminal 1940’s invention to the revival of the vintage sounds of the Mellotron in the 1990’s and beyond.
Watch the trailer here:
Holy effing S this movie is so good:
I didn’t think it was possible for someone else to synopsize my life so acurately, despite the fact I am neither male nor from the UES, but here it is.
Also, I love MK Olsen. For reals. That bitch is the shit.
Check her out! Ha! She was seriously amazing in this role. Probably because like the rest of us she knew hella eff-ed up rich white hippie chicks with dreads! HA!
I mean Ben Kingsley’s character’s accent is hella f-ed up throughout but the rest is so good you just don’t give a shit.
PS: anyone who hasn’t aimlessly ridden the NYC subway during the summer while listening to Bonita Applebaum really needs to get on that shit. Go to Brighton Beach or something (as much as I love that subway stop I will not see that hella poor looking Two Lovers movie with Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow–both of whom I can take a pass on–the trailer of which features the Brighton Beach stop). I mean if all else fails hit a lame Irish pub on the UES and smoke a joint on the corner before going in.
