    The White Buffalo

    ★★

    🎵...Well, listen everybody
    To what I got to say
    There's a weird-ass little western
    Ooh, I watched on Tubi just today

    Well, it happened a long time ago
    In the bizarre cinematic land
    of Dino De Laurentiis
    With his half-assed movie plans

    Dino needed hits
    But his giant ape had flopped
    So he summoned the Great White Animatronic Buffalo, baby
    And on it millions of dollars dropped

    Yeah, it's all right

    Then came Chuck Bronson
    Full of nightmares and dread…

    [Sante Sangre 9 1st Impression Part 1]

    Step inside our circus tent.
    Please ignore the dead elephant
    We had to give him up for Lent
    Step inside! Step inside!

    We've got thrills and shocks
    Downs kids snorting Chinese Rock
    Leave your right ear in the box
    Come inside! Come inside!

    Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
    See the show!

    Left behind the bars
    Orgo samples the tattooed lady's charms
    Won't someone please call the gendarmes
    Before his wife is totally…

    Good Night Oppy

    ★★½

    Amblin's reboot of Short Circuit, with 100% more CGI, 50% more feelz, 40% less hard science, and an equivalent amount of anthropomorphization. At least it doesn't have Fisher Stevens in brownface.

    Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey

    ★★★★

    I grew up listening to the Theremin on film and in popular music, but had no idea what sort of instrument was making that weird oooo-eeee-ooo sound on the soundtrack of Forbidden Planet or in the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations* until 1997, when a talk.bizarre acquaintance of mine, with a nom-de-Internet of plord, and I hung out at the Haight-Ashbury Street Festival and watched a Punk-Exotica-Lounge band called Action Plus perform. Unfortunately, I was only able to locate one video…

    Harold and Maude

    ★★½

    I get why this film resonates so much with a specific demographic of nostalgic old hippies, and aging baby-boomers who feel creatively stifled by their careers, but its central message of tuning in, turning on, and dropping out was a tad outdated even when it was originally released, and it certainly hasn't aged like a fine wine since.

    But what really chaps my ass are the 1-dimensional strawmen authority figures that director Hal Ashby sets up as Harold's obstacles on…
