VIDEO FEROX was a ZINE in the 90's. Now... it's a COFFEE TABLE BOOK!!!

Readers of my old zine STAY SICK! will undoubtedly remember Henrik Larsen's review of an issue of the legendary Swedish zine VIDEO FEROX. The zine is long gone but, lo and behold, the editor Johan Karlsson has reprinted every issue (i.e. 10) in book form! The book contains 608 pages and weighs a kilo (two pounds)!! Madre de dios!!!

Those original issues are RARE! (I never got hold of the early ones) and they go for inflated prices on the Swedish auction site Tradera. I've just ordered the book and paid around HALF of what one of the original issues went for on Tradera recently!!! According to their website the print run is limited to 160 copies and there's only about 30 left. Get it while you can. NB: All text is in Swedish.

For the Video Ferox site go here.

Prices: 297 SKR (Sweden) / 329 SKR (Denmark) (incl. postage). If you live in other parts of Scandinavia or elsewhere write and ask for price. They take PayPal and Bank-giro (the latter probably only within Sweden).

Juan de los Muertos (Spain/Cuba, 2011) - trailer

Check out this trailer for JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS [Juan of the dead] that I discovered via a Uruguayan blog, El Bizarro Mundo Nihilista (whose contents is mainly reviews of spanking sex videos, LOL). I don't know if there's a DVD release but it certainly looks cool enough to get if there is one!

"I love you Gordon Bleu"

No. 375 in our series of mistaken lyrics: SONIC YOUTH's "I Love You Golden Blue" which I seriously heard as I love you Gordon Bleu. Hahaha. Gordon Bleu is the often used Danish spelling of Cordon Bleu. Do watch the video, it's an awesome track. Oh, and it would have been more fun if she had actually sung I love you Gordon Bleu.

PS: I was gonna link to a recipe site to show you what a Gordon Bleu is and in honour of the single one Icelandic reader of this blog I decided to link is to an Icelandic site. Gee, if the Danes hadn't spent a 1000 years trying to improve our dialect of the old Viking lingo I would still be able to read that site. As it is I can only pick out certain words like Uppskriftir, kjüklinga and eggjahvïta, haha.
