Spring Break y'all! I rolled up to see Spring Breakers in a White Cadillac with JC, which is pretty much the best way to go see it. I think it does capture the early 20s Zeitgeist (for the little I know about that), at least the really empty parts of it. It just occurred to me that there's not really any texting, etc., which is not realistic. It's typical Harmony Korine, for good and bad. Franco is awesome and the girls are not given a lot to do except walk around in bikinis. Gucci Mane turns in a very lackluster performance. The ATL twins however, will probably be the first twins to win a single Oscar, since they do everything together.
I guess one of the women is Korine's wife. She looks like a teenager but she's 26. I also found out he was born in Bolinas, which explains a lot.
Franco's character is supposedly based on Riff Raff, this rapper that Harmony Korine hangs out with. I don't know this guys deal (besides the fact that he often hangs out with a boa constrictor), but he seems pretty rad in this Nardwuar interview.
Were you guys out in Midtown this weekend? I've always thought the people bitching about too many bars, etc., were alarmists but do you think we are in danger of Midtown truly starting to suck? It's so overrun. smiller had a weird confrontation with a bro fucking with him out of nowhere because he didn't know where "club 21" was. Is that even a thing?
