    just my subjective overview, shot between the horny activities I took part in myself, so no professional intentions what so ever ! Also no copyright infringement intended. Music was nothing but the ambient soundscape at the location, enhanced with the ultra-fitting and appropriate Bareback Boys. Although there is some nudity and some sexual suggestion in this clip, I don't feel this is harmful viewing at any age in West European or Northern American countries, but there may be countries where this opinion is not shared. I respect every religion and ways of life; I hope to expect the same from others.

    • As An Talamh: Notes On Rave In Dublin. (Teaser...)


      from DCTV / Added

      5,033 Plays / / 0 Comments

      On any given weekend thousands of people, regardless of age or social class, party to underground dance music in Dublin city. Over the next six months Dublin Community TV will be working on a two part documentary to capture the raw energy and labours of love that keep us buzzing each weekend. Part one will go right back to the old-skool. The emergence of our original rave nation, the people, clubs, labels and pirates that broke ground for repetitive beats in the city. While we doff our hats to the origin myths, this doc refuses to regale in clichéd war tales from 1990s clubland with its well worn paths of tabloid hysteria and super-clubs. This documentary is about the rich cultural legacy of the hardcore explosion in the city. Part two looks at how this memory lives on through the work of today’s promoters, bedroom producers, DJs, DIY record labels and radio shows. This is a documentary about a community that battles backward club opening hours and criminalizing caricatures yet works hard to keep an organic, mutating dance culture alive. To get involved talk to us at http://asantalamh.tumblr.com Directed by James Redmond. Edited by Conor Hinfey. Musical Score by Rory St. John. Camera Work by John Breslin, James Redmond, Connor Hinfey and Sean Treacy. Footage from D:Ream Rave at the Mansion House in 1991 comes from a VHS given away with DFC Zine. We'd love to trace who made it...

              Stock footage of the curfew protests on Sunset strip in 1966 with a soundtrack collage created by myself to give impact to the silent film, contains looped extracts from an unreleased instrumental version of for what it's worth by Buffallo springfield and are used to give historical context under the terms of 'Fair use'. The Sunset Strip curfew riots, also known as the "hippie riots," were a series of early counterculture-era clashes that took place between police and young people on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California, beginning in the summer of 1966 and continuing on and off through the early 1970s. In 1966, annoyed residents and business owners in the district had encouraged the passage of strict (10:00pm) curfew and loitering laws to reduce the traffic congestion resulting from crowds of young club patrons This was perceived by young, local rock music fans as an infringement on their civil rights, and on Saturday, November 12, 1966, fliers were distributed along the Strip inviting people to demonstrate later that day. Hours before the protest one of L.A's rock 'n' roll radio stations announced there would be a rally at Pandora's Box, a club at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Crescent Heights, and cautioned people to tread carefully The Times reported that as many as 1,000 youthful demonstrators, including such celebrities as Jack Nicholson and Peter Fonda (who was afterward handcuffed by police), erupted in protest against the perceived repressive enforcement of these recently invoked curfew laws.This provided the basis for the teen exploitation film Riot on Sunset Strip, and inspired multiple songs:

                  Allen Shelton's "Where the North Sea Touches Alabama" (On sale by University of Chicago Press: http://www.press.uchicago.edu) is a work of sociological fictocriticism that explores not only the author’s relationship to the artist but his physical, historical, and social relationship to northeastern Alabama, in rare style. "In Christ there is no East or West, North or South, and the North Sea touches Alabama." Part of the sermon by a Sand Mountain preacher, 1979. This utterance by a preacher inexplicably came true when the dead artist Patrik Keim’s coffin may have been uncovered two hundred miles from where it was interned in an ancient beaver swamp in Alabama by dozer operator who quickly reburied the miraculous coffin. The artist Keim was obsessed by the North Sea. The report of the investigation into the event is titled Where the North Sea Touches Alabama by Allen Shelton, University of Chicago Press, 2013. The fictocritical account is part memoir, part steam-punk theory, and a hard edged psychic materialist analysis of the possible return. Book Trailer credits Directed & Edited by Nathan Peracciny Readings by: Lesley Stern, author of The Smoking Book. Michael Joyce, author of Foucault, in Winter, in the Linnaeus Garden. Donna Haraway, author of A Cyborg Manifesto. Kathleen Stewart, author of Ordinary Affects. Special thanks to: Anne Costello, Molly Jarboe, Lesley Stern, Michael Joyce, Donna Haraway, Kathleen Stewart, Ruah, Nadja, and Tyree Shelton. Artistic contributions by: Julian Montague, Molly Jarboe, and Patrik Keim’s archives.

                      Trees offered our ancestors the resource to cut lumber from logs and build their first shelters on the frontier. My great, great grandparents owned a sawmill in Mankato MN starting in the 1860’s. My logo is a tintype of that family taken about 1865. It was great fun to find this operating sawmill and exciting to film how it worked. Living history is what breathes life into your family stories and will help make history come alive.
