Darpino in Action

There we all were, DC Metroblogers, gathered ’round the table waiting for Darpino to break out the mad DJ Metroblog skills. Waiting.

And waiting some more. It seems that Darpino wasn’t DJ’ing as much as “guest” DJ’ing. Guest in the very liberal sense of the word since after some more waiting, say till midnight, he did more drinking than spinning.

Not that we minded much. He took us on a wonderful DVD review adventure, leading the whole crew down a new path with the mention of his favorite indie movie maker. I didn’t get much of the plot but I do remember Darpino’s favorite scene.

Something about porn stars masturbating in a giant clamshell while killing snails. Yep, you had to be there. Or you could just come home to porn on your telly.

Either way, one more night with the crazy DC Metroblog crew.

    Ah, tho’ I was at the other table with Michael’s rock-star wife, I think that movie scene sounds like Crispin Hellion Glover’s “What is it?” …

    No clue Jenn, but you man was all into it. He even knew the exact number of snails killing in making the film. Kinda icky if you ask me.

    Spot on Jenn. “What is It?” by Crispin Glover is finally complete after many years in the making. It just played at the Toronto Film Fest.

    Here’s a link to an amusing review

    I have a feeling if this ever makes it to DC that Prokop and I will be dragging everyone out to see it.

    Glover had some crazy spoken-word show at Metro Cafe some years back and showed the dailies for the film then. It was insane, truly insane.

    I’m definitely up for seeing how he put all that footage together, especially if the Shirley Temple shot made it in… UNREAL.
