Kevin Carter (1960-1994)

You might have heard the song 'Kevin Carter' by The Manic Street Preachers...well its about this man. He was an award winning South African photojournalist who committed suicide due to depression because of the many traumatic experiences during his career. His work is astonishing, and when you read a bit more about of him, hes probably one of the most risk taking photographers you've ever heard about. He was a member of the Bang Bang Club who were a group of photographers during the apartheid in south africa. One of the most shocking photos ive ever seen is the one below. Whether your interested in photography or not this man really is interesting to read about.

Pulp - Freaks (1987)

This is Pulp's second album released in 1987. I never really listend to their old stuff until the last couple of months, since ive become a pulp finatic. Its a fucking good album, the lyrics on all of the tracks are quite deep (oh edgy jarvis). The tune you'll probably know off the album is 'Anoreix Beauty' which is fucking quality. My personal favorite is 'Fairground' purley because its weird as and when you listen to it, it puts quite a mental image in your head. Click the link above to download it.

Julien Donkey Boy (1999)

Watched this today for the second time. It's directed by Harmony Korine (Co-writer of Kids). First time round i was a bit spun out about it all, as it is a fucking weird film. It's quite boring but its actually a fucking amazing portrait of schizophrenia. The family on a whole are just well fucked up, well worth seeing just to make you appreciate not being a schizophrenic. Not better than a beautiful mind though.
