    TOP 5 STYLISH FOLKS OF 2015 (IN ORDER)

    in Pop Culture

    As 2015 comes to a close this blogger can honestly say that this year has been a very big year for fashion not only high fashion but for the underground fashion world also. Seems as like this year many underground styles have came to the forefront of fashion for example Kanye West of course with his very basic color/style clothing that has been popular for a while it just never was as big till now. Many items came back such as ripped jeans that are actually hand ripped and not factory ripped….ya we know who you are. Now this list that I am about to give you is my honest opinion of who I thought was the most stylish, best dressed, and looked the best in 2015. Oh and in my true nerdy style if you click on any of the pictures or GIFs it will take you to something about that person either an article about them or their music something of that nature…and every name it linked to their Instagram pages. Here it is:


    #5 Ian Connor


    #4 Nicki Minaj


     #3 Solange Knowles


    #2 Rox Brown


    #1 A$AP Rocky

    Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine 1/21/16 - Kiss the Ring: Italian crime cinema

    in Entertainment

    This week on Weird Scenes - we're setting sails for sunny Italy!


    Among the many subgenres of cult film the Italians co-opted and proceeded to perfect was one of the wildest, most consistently entertaining and grim of the bunch: the poliziotteschi.


    Marked by extreme violence, gorgeous women, corrupt politicians and police and stylish if dangerous mobsters with a code of ethics all their own, the Italian crime film surpassed its Stateside, UK and French forebears by amping up the action, the body count, the speed and explosiveness of it all.  Packed to the gills with wild car chases, stunt-filled shootouts on crowded streets and abandoned industrial complexes and backroom double dealings, there is quite literally nothing else like them in cinema!


    With directors (Lenzi, Damiani, DiLeo, Massi, Castellari, Sollima) and stars specializing in and rising to fame mainly based on their efforts herein (Maurizio Merli, Thomas Milian, Gian Maria Volante, Luc Merenda, Fabio Testi) and others establishing deep roots in the genre (Martin Balsam, Adolfo Celi, John Saxon, Telly Savalas, Henry Silva), the Italian crime film has finally achieved reappraisal late in the DVD era, with many of its key efforts only now making their way to domestic shores.


    Join us as we try to cozy up to the right people and pay proper respect to the people who matter, to get things done (if you know what I'm saying, capisce?)

    Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine 1/7/16 - Fight the Power!

    in Entertainment

    Tonight, we're gettin' down and taking on The Man!


    One of the most consistently entertaining of genres, the blaxploitation film was an ersatz lovechild of the civil rights movement, often helmed and produced by established white directors (Jack Hill, Greydon Clark) but tailored to inner city urban audiences.  


    Simultaneously "realist" in their gritty, no holds barred depiction of ghetto life and utterly fantastic (crazed kung fu, often unrealistic scenarios), these pictures offered the promise of empowerment and more importantly, pride to a community emerging from the shadows to take a more equal place in American society throughout the late 60's and 70's.  


    Packed to the gills with soulful, funky soundtracks (often quite essential in and of themselves), no holds barred action, crime and ersatz appropriations from the concurrent kung fu craze, these films feature stylish fashions of the era, sports heroes, martial arts stars, sex and most importantly, tales of the victory of one man...or a united community, against corruption in high places - cops, government, mobsters, you name it.  And to quote a much later film, they do it with style...


    Join us as we talk flying fists, funky 'fro's and flashy fashion, only here on Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine!


    Week 19
    Fight the Power!
