ONBC Update

Unread postby Liz » Tue Mar 01, 2005 7:00 am

Happy March everyone.

If you think things have been kind of weird here at ONBC over the last few days, you would be right. DITHOT and I have been out of town - together. We had a bit too much fun :bounce: , really, and slacked off a little bit in our moderator duties. There was madness in every direction. :hypnotic: Although we brought a laptop, the dial-up didn't always cooperate for us--like yesterday, not at all. :banghead: And it wouldn't be your imagination if you thought DITHOT sounded a bit too much like Liz in a couple of her posts considering Liz forgot to exit out of DITHOT and relog on as Liz in order to post. :dunce: :lol: But that will be rectified shortly.

We will get our act together soon here, I trust, as our discussion for CATCF begins this morning. Hope to see you all there.

A good time was had by all indeed! :capnjack: What a crazy place! :yikes: Hollyweird was great fun but I think I see the attraction of France. :france:

Okay you two, spill it! WE WANT DETAILS!

I guess you'll tell me to wait until the book comes out......Hollyweird is Decadent and Depraved; Fear and Loathing on Vacation; What's Eating Liz and DITHOT. Oh the list goes on!

Nebraska, I am responsible for that. I got a little worried about using someone else's drawing. But I'll miss that "In the Hand of Dante" Johnny. He was special.

:rotflmao: KY, there's not much to tell, really. We just had a good time watching the Oscars together. :cool:

Not dumb at all, KYwoman! You can change, in your profile, the way the Zone looks. For "Board Style", just choose ONBC instead of The Zone or Subsilver.

Hello fellow ONBCers!

I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about this book?

It says it's not available yet but maybe someone knows something.

There was a thread about it a few weeks ago, it's probably fallen off the boards by now. Looks like an interesting book.

Synopsis from Amazon UK
From beloved bad-boy to cool and captivating maverick, Johnny Depp has inspired media intrigue and has been the source of international acclaim since the early 1990s. He has attracted attention for his eccentric image, his accidental acting career, his beguiling good looks, and his quirky charm. In Johnny Depp Starts Here, film scholar Murray Pomerance explores our fascination with Depp, his riddling complexity, and his meaning for our culture. Moving beyond the actor's engaging and inscrutable private life, Pomerance focuses on his enigmatic screen performances from A Nightmare on Elm Street to Secret Window. The actor's image is studied in terms of its ambiguities and its many strange nuances: Depp's ethnicity, his smoking, his tranquility, his unceasing motion, his links to the Gothic, the Beats, Simone de Beauvoir, the history of rationality, Impressionist painting, and more. In a series of treatments of his key roles, including Rafael in The Brave, Bon Bon in Before Night Falls, Jack Kerouac in The Source, and the long list of acclaimed performances from Gilbert Grape to Cap'n Jack Sparrow, we learn of Johnny onscreen in terms of male sexuality, space travel, optical experience, nineteenth-century American capitalism, Orientalism, the vulnerability of performance, the perils of sleep, comedy, the myth of the West, Scrooge McDuck, Francois Truffaut, and more. Johnny's face, Johnny's gaze, Johnny's aging, and Johnny's understatement are shown to be inextricably linked to our own desperate need to plumb performance, style, and screen for a grounding of reality in this everaccelerating world of fragmentation and insecurity. Both deeply intriguing and perpetually elusive, Depp is revealed as the central screen performer of the contemporary age, the symbol of performance itself. No thinker has meditated on Johnny Depp this way before - and surely not in a manner worthly of the object of scrutiny.
