Hell's Belles are perhaps one of the best novelty concepts I've encountered recently.

Rather fetching young ladies, as well.

Your geographical concerns are well founded -- the poll function only allows for 12 divisions of the world, and I assumed most members would be from North America. Originally, Africa was divided into three portions, and Scandinavia and the Mediterranean each had their own entry, separate from Wester...

I think their particular combination of gender politics and gut-dropping chord changes makes their cultural moment stretch out to the present... they certainly still seem relevant, if you know what I mean.

I know I'm doing my best to spread the word.

Anyone have any ideas about "107" though?

Excellent and useful advice, everyone! I'm quite, quite grateful. I'm not so sure as I'm still reeling from your use of the construction "a whole 'nother") I find it behooves one to occasionally resort to the colloquial, especially when attempting to cultivate an air of jollity and fraternity. Using...

Anyone with enough time and energy can get a guitar to make pleasing noises. But getting people to *listen* to those noises... that's a whole 'nother bag. I've never quite understood how musicians manage to bridge that gap between the garage and the local nightclub (and the local nightclub and a ven...

On the other hand, his whole thesis is that the reproduced art is the aura-less art. Which makes me wonder if aura is really a part of art at all, and not some related phenomenon.

He seems locate it outside the film itself, in the offscreen lives of the film idols. Hmm. That might be true for a certain kind of Hollywood product, but doesn't say much about, say, "28 Days Later" or "Igby Goes Down" (both films with well-known actors, but not quite in the Hollywood star system)....
