Stanley Kubrick – On View at LACMA through June 30, 2013
Los Angeles! If you are a fan of the films of Stanley Kubrick, you must check out an exhibit of Kubrick memorabilia at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Props, set pieces, costumes, script notes, shooting schedules and tons of ephemera from all of Kubrick’s movies are represented in this exhibit as well as many of the cameras he used to make his beloved films.

My favorite parts of the exhibit were the “Clockwork Orange” and “the Shining” areas, but if “Full Metal Jacket” or “Eyes Wide Shut” was your thing, never fear, the infamous helmet shown on “Full Metal Jacket’s” poster is on view as well as the masks worn in “Eyes Wide Shut” can be seen.

KY Geli XXX (Street art featuring the artwork of "A Clockwork Orange"
Listen up my droogs! What are the chances I’d run into street art featuring “A Clockwork Orange” the day before I heard that “A Clockwork Orange” musical is being planned for the 50th anniversary of the novel? Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well, to quote Alex. The musical will hit Manchester stages in 2012 and is officially sanctioned by “A Clockwork Orange” writer Anthony Burgess. Though Burgess died in 1993, he wrote a bunch of songs for a proposed musical which is described as a cross between “West Side Story” and “My Fair Lady” and is a much lighter version of the story compared to the movie version. Stay abreast, brother, of all the developing news on Anthony Burgess’ official website. In the meanwhile, you’ve got plenty of time for the old in-out. Viddy well, little brother. Viddy well.

“Then I looked at its top sheet, and there was the name -A CLOCKWORK ORANGE- and I said: ‘That’s a fair gloopy title. Who ever heard of a clockwork orange?'” – Alex. It’s Malcolm McDowell’s birthday today! Happy birthday to my favorite droog!
