Fear on SNL, 1981: “It’s great to be here in New Jersey”

Always heard about this, it’s mentioned in Banned in DC, but the John Belushi/Ian MacKaye phone call?? I had no idea.

When Fear played on “Saturday Night Live,” Ian, did you go down to “Saturday Night Live” and check it out in New York with Rollins and the gang?
Rollins was not there. I’ll tell you the story if you’d like to hear the story about that. At eight in the morning, some point in October, I got a call. I was driving a newspaper truck for The Washington Post at the time, so eight in the morning was brutal. It was Lorne Michaels’ office, Lorne Michaels being the producer of “Saturday Night Live,” and I get this woman, “Lorne Michaels’ office, please hold.” I was completely delirious. Lorne Michaels gets on the phone - “Hi, Ian, it’s Lorne Michaels of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ I’m calling you because I got your number from John Belushi. He says that you might be able to get some dancers up here ‘cause we want to have Fear on the show.” I was completely baffled by this. “Pardon me?” “Hold on a second.” John Belushi gets on the phone and he says, “This is John Belushi. I’m a big fan of Fear’s. I made a deal with ‘Saturday Night Live’ that I would make a cameo appearance on the show if they’d let Fear play. I got your number from Penelope Spheeris, who did ‘Decline of Western Civilization’ and she said that you guys, Washington DC punk rock kids, know how to dance. I want to get you guys to come up to the show.” It was worked out that we could all arrive at the Rockefeller Center where “Saturday Night Live” was being filmed. The password to get in was “Ian MacKaye.” We went up the day before. The Misfits played with The Necros at the Ukrainian hall, I think, so all of the Detroit people were there, like Tesco Vee and Cory Rusk from the Necros and all the Touch and Go people and a bunch of DC people - 15 to 20 of us came up from DC. Henry was gone. He was living in LA at this point. So we went to the show. During the dress rehearsal, a camera got knocked over. We were dancing and they were very angry with us and said that they were going to not let us do it then Belushi really put his foot down and insisted on it. So, during the actual set itself, they let us come out again. If you watch the show - have you seen it?

Yes I have.
If you watch it - during the show - before they go to commercial, they always go to this jack-o-lantern. This carved pumpkin. If you watched it during the song, you’ll see one of our guys, this guy named Bill MacKenzie, coming out holding the pumpkin above his head because he’s just getting ready to smash it. And that’s when they cut it off. They kicked us out and locked us out for two hours. We were locked in a room because they were so angry with us about the behavior. I didn’t think it was that big of deal.

They locked you in a room?
Yeah, we were locked in a room. They said they were going to sue us and have us arrested for damages. There was so much hype about that. The New York Post reported half a million dollars worth of damages. It was nothing. It was a plastic clip that got broken. It was a very interesting experience and I realized how completely unnatural it is for a band to be on a television show - particularly a punk band - that kind of has a momentum to suddenly be expected to immediately jump into a song in that type of setting. It was very weird. Largely unpleasant. Made me realize that’s not something I’m interested in doing.

UPDATE: As someone pointed out here, the producer that year was Dick Ebersol, not Lorne Michaels. I’m sure Ian was confused and didn’t realize the difference.

Rule #5, from Jim Jarmusch’s Golden Rules of Filmmaking
by Mark Malazarte

Post-modernism simplified in a visual quotation. Plus it features two of my favorite directors. That and this quote also eloquently sums up Tumblr and/or most blogs in a nutshell. Everyone seems to want prints of this but due to procrastination and a few other things, I haven’t gotten around to it yet. It’ll happen though, pinky swear.

VULP-0013 is Natural Snow Buildings’ first release of 2010, the free-for-download double LP The Centauri Agent! On part one, the 41 minute “Our man from Centauri” sets the stage, a cosmic, sprawling opener with themes that continue on into “The accidental remote viewer”, before fizzling out into static. Part two is comprised of nine beautiful and intense tracks (particular stand-outs including “The Psychic Circle/Uchronia”, “The storm of resurrection”, and “Solar flares”). Lovely and intricately woven as ever, while frequently heading off into new and challenging sonic territory, Mehdi and Solange have created yet another very special work of musical art with The Centauri Agent!

There’s so much to say about iPad’s impact on everything from business models and UI design to the future of all that is holy. Sure, there’s a lot of thoughtful and straight analysis out there AND gadget fetishists’ spank-ful essays, but really, this tablet represents a massive change in one key respect: Compared to similar devices on the market, the iPad is the most environmentally friendly of the bunch. And this matters.

Curious, I looked at the environmental specs1 for the following:

  • iPad
  • Dell Inspiron mini 10 and mini 9
  • HP mini 2104
  • XO Laptop (OLPC)

Folks, I’m no mathematician, I’m more of an ass man, but I looked at some numbers.

knowyourmeme:

World Cup College compiled a forecast on the expected performance of 32 national teams participating in World Cup 2010, based on each country’s internet usage and population density. The purpose of this research study is to see whether there is a “positive correlation between high meme transmission and high quality football.”

A country which facilitates the effective spread of memes might be expected to have a successful national football team. Whilst memes have causal properties and are capable of replicating between human hosts, environmental context can hinder or assist this process. If advanced ideas on fitness, technique, tactics and strategy spread more quickly in one country in comparison with another, then this could confer competitive advantage.

While it remains an interesting hypothesis yet to be proven, these statistics may be put to good use in tracking memetic activities during the month-long sport event.  At Know Your Meme, we’re putting together a special task force to monitor all the online buzz and related discussions in the coming weeks. If you’re a soccer/football fan or planning on watching teh games, feel free to join in at the KYM research forums.

How To Challenge a Wrongful YouTube Takedown Through Fair Use

We’ve been tracking the Hitler Downfall meme and have become very concerned about the recent slate of YouTube takedowns by Constantin Films.

In talking to many of the creators of the Downfall meme videos, we discovered that many of them were unaware of their rights and protections under Fair Use.

To this end, we’ve created a short video that explains why we think that these videos are transformative works, why they should be protected under the Fair Use doctrine and what creators can do to challenge these unfair takedowns.

For additional information on Fair Use and your rights as content creator online, check out the following resources:

Big thanks to Pat Aufderheide of the Center for Social Media and Elizabeth Stark of the Open Video Alliance for their valuable assistance on this.

Today, I became a British Citizen. Here is me receiving my certificate of naturalisation from the former speaker of Hackney. She gave a great speech to all the new citizens and guests, plus check out those fresh trainers underneath her gown. This is how we roll in Hackney.

I’m very proud of Amanda for becoming a British citizen today. The ceremony itself was actually quite nice—very humble and simple, with a minimum of fuss. I learned that out of the two pledges (one non–religious, one for “Almighty God”), the non–religious is the default so as not to cause any friction with religious citizens–to–be who might not have read the application correctly.
