Designated music thread

Everything from HookTube/YouTube embeds to WebMs & mp4 and everything else music related – not necessarily sapphic in nature, though that is a big plus.

Listening to t.A.T.u. is a guilty pleasure of mine – there are quite a few witch house remixes of their songs worth checking out too. The music video to All The Things She Said is probably the most famous lesbian-themed music video of all time.

FrankensteinThe Curse of Frankenstein (1957), The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958), The Evil of Frankenstein (1964), Frankenstein Created Woman (1967), Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed (1969), The Horror of Frankenstein (1970) & Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell (1974). IMHO the only weak links in the series are The Evil of Frankenstein & Frankenstein Created Woman. While The Horror of Frankenstein is often considered a letdown, due to the lack of Cushing as the baron, and the very dark comedic tone, it is a really enjoyable film, and one of the underappreciated Hammer films.

DraculaDracula aka Horror of Dracula (1958), The Brides of Dracula (1960), Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966), Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968), Taste the Blood of Dracula (1970), Scars of Dracula (1970), Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972), The Satanic Rites of Dracula (1973) & The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (1974). The two first films are fantastic, and Brides is perhaps more enjoyable than the original despite Lee not returning as count Dracula. The following films does not feature Cushing as Van Helsing till Dracula A.D. 1972, and Lee’s mostly, if not completely, silent Dracula does not manage to make up for the lack of Van Helsing. Taste the Blood of Dracula is a decent entry into the series, though I would have liked to see them go with the original idea of having Ralph Bates character become possessed by count Dracula, instead of Lee being blackmailed to returning to a role he did not enjoy and give a forgettable performance.

The Karnstein TrilogyThe Vampire Lovers (1970), Lust For a Vampire (1971) & Twins of Evil (1971). The Vampire Lovers is arguably Hammer’s finest film, and is a must watch for connoisseurs of sapphic kino and Gothic horror films. Lust For a Vampire is a good follow-up, and Yutte Stensgaard does a good job in the role of Carmilla. The third and final entry in the trilogy might as well be a stand-alone film, and is far from Hammer’s best.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) – while it takes considerable liberties with the original story, it is a very good atmospheric film with a lot of charm. Stars Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes, Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville, and Hammer regulars Miles Malleson and Ewen Solon.

The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll (1960)

The Curse of the Werewolf (1961) – despite a lengthy opening it is really good, and equally as tragic and ebautiful as ‘The Wolf Man’ by Universal.

The Phantom of the Opera (1962)

The Kiss of the Vampire (1963)

The Gorgon (1964)

The Reptile (1966)

The Witches (1966)

The Plague of the Zombies (1966)

Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde (1971)

Countess Dracula (1971) – Loosely based on the murder claims surrounding Elizabeth Báthory. The story is similar to Hammer’s Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde. For some reason Ingrid Pitt’s voice was dubbed over by an uncredited actress (Olive Gregg), something she never forgave the filmmakers for.

Blood of the Vampire (1958) is not made by Hammer, but is very similar when it comes to visuals, and was written by Hammer regular Jimmy Sangster. Interestingly it features a character named professor Meinster, which is the surname of the baroness and her son in Hammer’s The Brides of Dracula from 1960, co-written by Sangster.

Everything Norse

http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Main_Page contains a lot of the source texts (the Eddas in particular) in the original Old Norse, and often in the Scandinavian translations as well. There are also scholary texts, and sagas.

The Internet Archive is another great source for free texts on the topics: https://archive.org/

There is a very interesting YouTube series by Maria Kvilhaug that deals with the symbolism of the poems and myths in great detail, and I highly recommend giving her videos a watch. In particular she stresses the importance of translating the names of characters and places – left in their Old Norse (or Anglicised) form they mean nothing to a modern, non-Old Norse speaking reader. The translation of the names are extremely important if we want to understand what the poems and the myths are really telling us.

https://hooktube.com/watch?v=evE6aLg-_Q8&index=1&list=PLxDBGYdDmm2n7-nYh49d9qMJRZB8Z1qSa

One thing that most people don’t know about Norse mythology is that the Norsemen believed in a form of reincarnation/rebirth. It was custom that the oldest son would be given his paternal grandfather’s name, the second oldest son the name of his maternal grandfather, and similarly with the daughters; the oldest daughter would be named after her paternal grandmother, and the second oldest after her maternal grandmother. This would allow the spirit of the ancestors live on through their bloodline. In the sagas there are mentions of characters born with the same marks upon their body as their ancestors were inflicted with. In the Helgi poems in the Elder Edda, it is said that the two main characters are reborn and fall in love again and again – at least three times.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebirth_in_North_Germanic_religion

I think this form of rebirth through one’s descendants sounds like it would help explain the sensation of déjà vu; ‘blood-memories’ passed down from the ancestors in our genes, kept alive and passed down from generation to generation, so that a distant descendant might feel a familiarity towards someone or some place he or she hasn’t known or been to before.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetic_memory_%28psychology%29

The way the different realms are separated are very similar to how the Norsemen viewed the world around them: the destructive jǫtnar (possibly translates into ‘the devourers’, but known as the stereotypical bad guy frost giants in popular culture) represent the wild forces of nature, and they inhabit he untamed and the potentially dangerous and lethal wilderness that surrounds us. They are opposing forces to the humans and the deities, who represent order, civilization and laws, but not ‘evil’, just as storms and other natural forces and disasters aren’t evil. In the second realm humans live, this realm represents the farms and the fields where humans have settled and worked, cut down trees, built homes and plowed the fields to grows grops and keep lifestock. Farms and fields would be fenced in, similar to the way the worlds in the Norse cosmology are – wilderness surrounds us, then, fenced in, we have the areas where humans live, and inside this, we have the final realm, places of worship and the thing assembly (gathering place to settle disputes and talk legal matters).

I’ll do my best to answer any questions, help with translations, etc. if there is any interest in anything Norse.

Sapphic kino

Here are some of the films, TV shows & webseries discussed so far, in the WebM threads over at /tv/:

Dracula’s Daughter (1936) – probably the first film to hint at the lesbian vampire trope. A surprisingly good sequel to Universal’s original ‘Dracula’ film in its own right.

The Vampire Lovers (1970) – Hammer’s adaptation of the ‘Carmilla’ novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu. Arguably the best adaptation of the story, & with some very good performances, especially from Ingrid Pitt as Marcilla/Carmilla. Stars Ingrid Pitt, Madeline Smith & Hammer regular Peter Cushing. Highly recommended; this may just be the best lesbian vampire film out there. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release features an audio commentary track with director Roy Ward Baker, (screen) writer Tudor Gates & actress Ingrid Pitt, excerpts from the story read by Ingrid Pitt, and interviews with Madeline Smith and Hammer scholars.

Lust For a Vampire (1971) – The sequel to ‘The Vampire Lovers’, though it disregards continuity somewhat and all main characters are recast. The very interesting audio commentary with Hammer historian Marcus Hearn, director Jimmy Sangster & actress Suzanna Leigh is worth listening to as well. Honourable(?) mention goes to ‘Twins of Evil’ (1971), which is the third and final instalment of Hammer’s ‘Karnstein Trilogy’, though the character of Carmilla is hardly in it at all, and there is nothing sapphic about it all. Worth a watch if you want to see the ever-awesome Cushing as a witch-hunter, and some beautiful twins in various state of undress.

Fucking Åmål aka Show Me Love (1998) – A Swedish award-winning drama directed by Lukas Moodyson that ‘follows the lives of two seemingly disparate teenage girls who begin a tentative relationship’. Captures the feeling of growing up in a small-town in Scandinavia in the late ’90s and the love-troubles of the characters brilliantly and beautifully.

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999) – a satirical romantic comedy that pokes fun of ‘conversion therapy’/’pray the gay away’ camps. Stars Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall & Cathy Moriarty.

D.E.B.S. (2003) – ‘Made in 2003 right in the middle of the ‘Charlie’s Angels’ resurgance, this cute and clever spoof featuring a team of young and dangerous females clad in plaid mini-skirts stormed Sundance and won its director, Angela Robinson, the chance to make it into a feature – 2004s’s identically-named ‘D.E.B.S.’)’. D.E.B.S by Angela Robinson | Live-Action Short Film: http://archive.is/xd7aQ / Full short film on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/23238222

D.E.B.S. (2004) – Robinson’s feature-length adaptation of her spy-thriller parody short film expands upon the world and characters of the short film, though it does perhaps lack the punch and twist of the short film. Should therefore be viewed after the short film. Stars Sara Foster, Jordana Brewester (from the ‘Fast and the Furious’ series), Meagan Good, Devon Aoki, Jill Ritchie, Jimmi Simpson, Holland Taylor & Michael Clarke Duncan. Jill Ritchie was, sadly, the only member of the cast of the short film to reprise her role (as Janet).

Saving Face (2004) – American drama/comedy. Focuses on the Chinese-American community and their reaction to some unconventional relationships.

Imagine Me & You (2005) – British comedy. Biggest names in it are Lena Heady, Piper Perabo & Anthony Stewart Head.

Natasha (2007) – a comedy/drama/thriller – comedic and light-hearted for the most, and with a very nice small-town English town setting. Sadly the soundtrack ruins what might otherwise have been very sensual scenes.

Cracks (2009) – A dark psychological period drama set in an all girls boarding school. Stars Eva Green, Imogen Poots & Juno Temple.

The Neon Demon (2016) – a psychological horror film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, that focuses on aspiring model Jesse who arrives in LA and crosses paths with ‘a group of beauty-obsessed women who will take any means necessary to get what she has’ – and vampires – maybe… Beautiful film (as always by NWR), that is deeper than some reviewers give it credit for. While the original ending was ditched, there are hints at a connection to Elizabeth Báthory/vampires in the film, and in an interview with the DP, Natasha Braier.

Anyone But Me – an original webseries that began in 2008, set in a post 9/11 NY.

Carmilla – Canadian webseries based on J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s novel of the same name. This series has been extensively discussed on /tv/, but since there are three seasons (+ season 0), a feature length film, and a prime-time TV show that is in the works, there ought to be a lot more to talk about in-depth.
