In 1989 an hour-long movie called Borders about Robert Anton Wilson, author of The Illumnatus! Trilogy and the Cosmic Trigger series, was produced for public TV (WGBH Boston was one of the production companies behind it). The movie, directed by Merrill Aldighieri and Joe Tripician, is a blend of dramatic and documentary elements that also occasionally includes charmingly rudimentary computer graphics.

The first few minutes of Borders is an extended scene involving Ted, who is possibly a scientist named Ted who is doing something to subvert the company he works for—something like that. Whatever it is, his lack of integrity is enough for his girlfriend to leave the weekend house he has lined up for them. Unfortunately, we never find out what Ted’s situation was all about, because we’re never shown a second sequence to flesh out the promising start.

At first blush, the title Borders seems inapt for a documentary about a figure whose intellectual reach is as impressive as Wilson’s, but in short order its true significance becomes clear. As Wilson says, in his life he has passed through many conceptual borders—leaving the Catholic Church for Trotskyism, only to abandon that for agnosticism—and integral to his thinking is the project of detecting, decoding, and resisting the various “borders” that mankind erects for itself to keep up separated.

Early in the program Wilson expands on this idea:
 

Borders are a basic mammalian territorial imperative. All mammals want a territory, and they claim it by making excretions that make a topological outline, that’s the territory they claim. That’s why your dog pees on every tree when you take him for a walk. That’s the way the dog is marking his territory. Chimpanzees mark their territories with excretions too. The difference between human beings (or domesticated primates) and the other mammals is we mark our territories with ink excretions on paper—land titles, peace treaties, and so on. Every national border in the world marks a place where two gangs of domesticated primates fought until they were exhausted, and then made a territorial mark. That’s how national borders are created. We don’t throw excretions at each other like the chimpanzees, we throw chemicals and bombs and so on, but it’s basically the same mammalian process. The only intelligent way to discuss politics is on all fours.

Okay, I’m putting the final nail in the coffin for Steve Buscemi-themed products. How can you top a sexy Steve Buscemi bikini? You just can’t. Or maybe you can with that Steve Buscemi adult onesie my Dangerous Minds colleague, Cherrybomb, blogged about a few weeks ago? Regardless, I think we’ve reached peak-Buscemi, people. It’s like with all the Aladdin Sane memes. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

You’ve ruined Steve Buscemi, are you happy now Internet???

Now I tried to locate where to purchase this mesmerizing Buscemi bikini online and it looks like it’s made by clothing company called O-Mighty.com. Sadly, it appears they no longer have the Buscemi bikini in stock or else they don’t make it anymore. Perhaps they’ll make it again if you contact them?

Steve Buscemi adult-sized onesie
Steve Buscemi adult-sized onesie by ‘RageOn.’

If the title of this post just made your day, like it made mine, then hey you’re welcome!

Available over at weirdo apparel purveyors, RageOn, this adult-sized onesie features the gorgeous mug of none other than actor Steve Buscemi at varying stages of his long career. Such as his portrayal of bungling kidnapper, Carl Showalter in the 1996 film, Fargo, and a snapshot of young Steve positioned to sit perfectly across your shoulder. You can pick up your very own “Steve Buscemi Galaxy Collage” onesie for the reasonable cost of just $99.84, a relatively small price to pay to have Steve Buscemi all over you.

Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?

Tiny stud earrings of Steve Buscemi, Bernie Sanders, Jack Torrance & other oddballs

FEEL THE BERN! Bernie Sanders stud earrings
 
Now your ears can also “Feel the Bern,” thanks to Seattle artist, Thais Marchese. Marchese makes some of the strangest, coolest studs for your ears (like the ones of Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, above) that I’ve seen in a long time.

Marchese uses images of pop culture heroes like Steve Buscemi, Jack Nicholson (as Jack Torrance, both above), and director Wes Anderson, and like many of us, it appears that Ms. Marchese is quite a devotee of Anderson, as many of her studs feature colorful characters from Anderson’s many films, such as Margot and Richie Tenenbaum from The Royal Tenenbaums, and runaway teens Sam Shakusky and Suzy Bishop from Moonrise Kingdom.

Each pair will run you nine bucks and can be obtained over at Marchese’s shop, Sleepy Mountain. A small price to pay to have Steve Buscemi quite literally in your ear.

Don’t even ask how got lost looking at tattoos of Steve Buscemi. But I did. And here’s the proof: A collection of the good, the bad and just some downright craptastic tattoos of the apparently widely beloved character actor.

BTW, I was simply astonished at the amount of Steve Buscemi tattoos that are out there. He has some seriously diehard fans. I didn’t post all the tattoos I found because I could have spent all day doing that. Feel free to add your own Steve Buscemi tattoos in the comments.

Fifty Shades of Grey


 
I’ve never read the Fifty Shades of Grey book nor will I ever read it. I do, however, feel like I know enough about the damned book because social media, websites and references to the tome on TV shows are a constant. As you probably know by now, the book was turned into a movie and will be released the day before Valentine’s Day on February 13, 2015. The movie is already coming under fire due to the supposed lack of chemistry between actors Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. If you actually give a rat’s ass you can read about the movie’s troubles here.

I don’t care about book or the movie, but if it starred Steve Buscemi as Christian Grey… I’d watch the shit out it and demand a sequel. AND then a prequel.

Remember that animated GIF by UK-based illustrator Helen Green showing all the style incarnations of David Bowie throughout his career? It made the rounds on the Internet a few weeks ago. Dangerous Minds blogged about it here.

Well, someone—someone with clearly too much time on their hands—swapped out Bowie’s face for Steve Buscemi’s and… voilà! You now have this ridiculous animated GIF of Steve Buscemi that shall reside on the Internet. Forever.

I’m not saying this is great or anything. I’m merely saying… here it is.

Divine Trash: Award-winning documentary on John Waters

image
 
The thing I love most about John Waters is that he always appears unfazed by anything. He’s cool, self-contained and shrugs off all condescension. He’s the kind of role model that should be used in schools to get youngsters (and adults) to like themselves, and be confident in who they are and how they want to live.

Steven Yaeger’s documentary on Waters, Divine Trash, is one of those films that ends up on everyone’s wish list at some point or another, it’s an ‘O, I’d love to see that’ kind-of-a-film, and is as good as you hope. This is especially true if you’re a fan of Mr Waters, and want to see behind the scenes and find out all about his early days as a film-maker, in particular the making of Pink Flamingoes. Director Yaeger more than deserved his Film-Makers’ Trophy for Best Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival for Divine Trash in 1998, as he gets the best out of Waters and knows how to tell a damned good tale. With contributions from Divine, Hal Hartley, Steve Buscemi, Jim Jarmusch, Waters and of course those fabulous Dreamlanders.
