America



America I've given you all and now I'm nothing.
America two dollars and twenty-seven cents January 17, 1956.
I can't stand my own mind.
America when will we end the human war?
Go fuck yourself with your atom bomb
I don't feel good don't bother me.
I won't write my poem till I'm in my right mind.
America when will you be angelic?
When will you take off your clothes?
When will you look at yourself through the grave?

[snip]

America this is quite serious.
America this is the impression I get from looking in the television set.
America is this correct?


-- Allen Ginsberg

Hi There,

On the week of November 29th to December 5th, 2010, I will be hosting an good old fashioned Blog-A-Thon to re-inaugurate the 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die Blog Club.

I am writing you today to invite you to contribute a post on the first film on the epic 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die List [http://www.filmsquish.com/guts/?q=taxonomy/term/53/9], George Méliès' A Trip To The Moon (1902) aka Le voyage dans la lune. Whether you are a new or old Club member, or simply want to join in on this Blog-O-Thon, with a new or archived post on the subject of A Trip To The Moon (1902), you're invited!

One of the many great things about A Trip To The Moon is that this full 14-minute short is available everywhere for viewing. I've put a couple links for you of the complete film at the bottom of the page.

If you're interested, drop me a link or a line through my site (www.filmsquish.com), and feel free to spread the word!
