Dark Stars Rising: Conversations from the Outer Realms

Availability: Ready to download

If you have ever wondered whether Teller actually talks, tickled yourself over Divine consuming inconsumables for film director John Waters, or perhaps considered girls and corpses, DARK STARS RISING is the one book that demonstrates there is more to the creative act than not being profiled on MTV. DARK STARS RISING is a collection of twenty six interviews spanning twenty- If you have ever wondered whether Teller actually talks, tickled yourself over Divine consuming inconsumables for film director John Waters, or perhaps considered girls and corpses, DARK STARS RISING is the one book that demonstrates there is more to the creative act than not being profiled on MTV. DARK STARS RISING is a collection of twenty six interviews spanning twenty-three years with creators of darker art worldwide, whether it be film, performance, literature, or something else entirely. In many cases never meeting or being aware of each other, the vortex here is interviewer and New York film writer Shade Rupe, known for his avant interests and the cultural sector he created with his Funeral Party series of books. Everyone in this collection (with the exception of the late Divine and Brother Theodore) is working today, continuing to produce artifacts that catch the heart and mind. Many rare photographs are used throughout, plus a resource section lists useful links for further information. A selection of choice reviews rounds out the book.

    Dark Stars Rising opens solidly, with an interview with the great Divine, possibly best known for his work in the John Waters films like Pink Flamingos and Hairspray. But instead of delving deep into Divine's career with Waters, Rupe simply has a conversation with the man, discussing not just his film work, but his music career, drugs and high school. This first interview sets the pace of what's to come, as the majority of the discussions in the book are conversational in tone, jumping from topi Dark Stars Rising opens solidly, with an interview with the great Divine, possibly best known for his work in the John Waters films like Pink Flamingos and Hairspray. But instead of delving deep into Divine's career with Waters, Rupe simply has a conversation with the man, discussing not just his film work, but his music career, drugs and high school. This first interview sets the pace of what's to come, as the majority of the discussions in the book are conversational in tone, jumping from topic to topic. This is a great format, as you end up learning more about the subject instead of the typical fluff where it's a barrage of questions like "What was it like working with so-and-so?" or "Who was your favorite actor [or director] to work with?" Nobody really cares about those questions, people want dirt. And, boy, Shade Rupe's style of interviewing allows that dirt to come up.

    "For me, therefore, the obvious way to succeed as an artist, whether it be a musician or a painter or a writer, is to find a unique voice or style or trademark of some kind, and then keep doing it relentlessly, and refining it relentlessly. But never, ever abandon it. Keep on and on and on and on. And eventually one day you will be known as 'the guy who paints stripes,' 'the guy who kills pigs.'

Or, 'I know who did that soup can. Andy Warhol.' Or, 'I know who wrote this book with young boys ejaculating over lizards. William Burroughs.' It's that simple. You knew as I was saying it that it was William Burroughs."

    An encyclopedia of the bizarre and strange in Hollywood. Very thorough and interesting. Plus, the fact that one of the featured individuals is my hero doesn't hurt.

    Lots of fun, with the interviews ranging from the surprisingly insightful to the completely bonkers.
