Cinema Style: The Fabulous Stains

For the past week I’ve been working on a piece about groundbreaking filmmaker Matt Porterfield. His film, Metal Gods, which focuses on adolescents on the Baltimore metal scene over the course of a week, is in pre-production, and stars L.A. “it” Girl Sky Ferreira. Subsequently all this thought about subculture movies reminded me of a certain cult classic: Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains.

Don’t remember the 1981 flick? Well it featured a teenage Diane Lane in what was based loosely on the story of girl punk group The Runaways (where Joan Jett got her start). It was featured former Sex Pistols members Steve Jones and Paul Cook, along with The Clash’s Paul Simonon. To keep it short, the film couldn’t really have been much cooler than it actually was. But the movie never got a wide release, or distribution deal, for that matter– well, not until late 2008 when it was finally released to DVD.

But what was more classic than the movie itself was Diane Lane’s style. Her odd, mullet-type hairstyle, and the somewhat disturbing fact that this teenage girl was running around without pants, and in sheer tops (apparently, bra-less)? “Fabulous”, no doubt. Her bright red lipstick and matching winged shadow? Superb. I cannot even imagine a more epic rock flick. Incidentally, along with the help of Joan Jett, the film The Runaways is slated to hit theaters in 2010. The idea of little Dakota Fanning running around in fishnets and a corset as Cherie Currie is creepy… very, creepy. And so, it will probably never be quite as rad. But long live the flick that Riott Grrls around the world can champion for years to come– and the awesome style that came along with it!

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  • film indonesia said:

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
