It’s been a long time since I updated Monkeyrockworld. Why? Because I have spent a month in India, and I have been busy, and I didn’t bother thinking about this stupid website, for all that matters. It seems like some people are getting offended or puzzled by what I try to say, so, better to shut the fuck up and enjoy my own time and my life, rather than trying to be the idiot Messiah of Independent Travel. Honestly, today especially, in this hazy day interrupted by little showers of hot rain, after an airport pick up at 6 am and another late morning sleep to try to help with the recent lack of it, I just don’t care. I started thinking, as always, though, and I got nostalgic. I saw the little alien with the big head occupying the best part of my right arm, pointing a laser gun at my sorry ass face still encrusted with the dirt of sleep, and I remembered why I am a Monkey Motherfucker. My cultural roots are all over the place in the best extremities the world had to offer, and since it appears most of you are too busy hiding your heads into your own asses when it comes to talk about modern world and travelling, I’ll try to give you a Sunday shot of past awesomeness. Because you gotta understand the past, to understand the present, they say.
The woman in the picture is Lina Romay , wife of seminal Spanish director Jess Franco and 70s sexploitation, and of course porn, actress. She is just awesome and beautiful and she acted in some of the best, weirdest, most perverse and evil movies ever made. This is where I come from, and this is where I think I’m going back, these days. I think I would like to share more of these things, for the unaware people. And more extreme music, too. Another thing which, apparently, is now coming back into my life.
This is the trailer for Vampyros Lesbos (1970), another seminal Jess Franco’s movie, starring Soledad Miranda, another woman literally to die for. Check it out and enjoy… it is a movie I really love and consider one of the masterpieces of 70s European cinema. I really hope some of you readers are already familiar with these things, if not, this might be an enlightening peek to start digging back. Enjoy your Sunday, I surely will, since Kit Yeng came back and we have quite a lot to catch up with. For the India writings, well… you better wait.
