Midnite Movies No. 9

Crispin Hellion Glover, whom I had the pleasure of talking to, put out an album in the 80's called: The Big Problem /= The Solution, The Solution = Let It Be. From this album comes this song, and the corresponding video: "Clowny Clown Clown." ...It's something alright.

Anyway, the album is wonderfully bizarre, as are all of his books, and his film (which is merely the first part of a planned trilogy) What Is It?

More on Crispin can be found at his personal site Volcanic Eruptions.

And for you convenience here is the interview I conducted with Crispin in conjunction with the Chicago stop on his Big Slide Show.

And what the hell, for your further enjoyment(?) here is the trailer for part two of the trilogy: It Is Fine, Everything is Fine

And Crispin performing a reading from his book: "What It Is, And How It Is Done."

He performs these readings beat for beat and gesture for gesture exactly the same each time.

He is a fascinating character who is much more Dali or Duchamp than McFly. Highly recommended if you can stomach it. There is a lot of really intelligent stuff lurking underneath all the outer weirdness, listen to the interview and read his essay in Apocalypse Culture II if you're interested in scratching the surface. In the meantime, good NITE!
