Betty Blowtorch: And Her Amazing True Life Adventures

I've been dying to watch Betty Blowtorch: And Her Amazing True Life Adventures by Antonia Scarpa. I am VERY happy I finally found it on youtube. I can't believe the whole doc is available for free! Betty Blowtorch may be the most underrated band in the history of music. I hardly ever saw them mentioned anywhere and that's a SHAME.

The documentary tells the story of the band (from Butt Trumpet to Betty Blowtorch) and ends with a dramatic note with the death of the lead singer Bianca - RIP :'(

Don't miss it, really! It offers an amazing insight to discover this band and some of their best songs: Hell on Wheels, Love/Hate, I'm Ugly...

Jobriath A.D. by Kieran Turner

Kieran Turner (who, according to IMDb, took part in the creation of Vito and I am Divine) recently released its documentary about the first openly gay rock star Jobriath.

Official description from the press kit: “The American Bowie,” “The True Fairy of Rock & Roll,” “Hype of the Year.” Known as the first openly gay rock star, Jobriath’s legacy delves deeper than the labels hung upon him. His reign was brief—two years and two albums. Sabotaged by a publicity machine run amok, shunned by the gay community and dismissed by critics, Jobriath was excommunicated from the music business, and became an early casualty of AIDS. Now new generations of fans have discovered him through acts like The Pet Shop Boys, Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Siouxsie Sioux, and Morrissey, all of whom cite Jobriath as a groundbreaking influence. Through interviews, archival material and animation, experience the heartbreaking, unbelievable story of the one, the only, Jobriath.

Sounds pretty good, don't you think? Don't miss it if you have any interest in glam rock, glitter and pop culture.

♥ The Jawbreaker Diaries ♥

WAY before Tumblr made it so popular, Jawbreaker was already one of the greatest dark teen movies. Everything is put together to make it a cult movie including a final memorable scene with a GORGEOUS Rose McGowan that will be forgotten. Here are the Jawbreaker Diaries (rare behind-the-scenes footage from the movie featuring, among others, The Donnas!) that I just found on youtube. Thank you filmsorcery for posting these videos!
