“I once had a dream, or a vision, and I imagined that dream to be of importance to other people, so I wrote the manuscript and made the film. But it is not until the moment when my dream meets with your emotions and your minds that my shadows come to life. It is your recognition that brings them to life. It is you indifference that kills them. I hope that you will understand; that you when you leave the cinema will take with you an experience or a sudden thought—or maybe a question. The efforts of my friends and myself have then not been in vain…”
— Ingmar Bergman

Jeans Wilder - Gravity Bong

Premiere from new album Totally

External image

Totally did not expect this one to be coming out, but Jeans Wilder has been keepin busy.  Another tuned down pysch LP with plenty of slow burners to drag out your summer days.  This one sounds the cleanest to date, but by no means has he dropped his heavy distortion and crooning lyrics.  Definite summer jam set for heavy rotation.   


The lo-fi wash and dub-like production are still part of his signature, only now Jeans is a little bit further from the shade and closer to the sand. It’s the soundtrack for a bonfire at the moment where you steal away from the others to sit and watch the tide. Somewhere between the crashing churn of the Pacific, Jeans Wilder is out there.

Jeans Wilder - Totally LP will be out June 26th on Everloving here

Jeans Wilder - Spanish Tile

It would make sense that San Diego produces a depth of sun-blasted easy swimming pop tunes. Bros just long board all day up and down Mission Beach jamming out to tunes like this on their walkmen. Easy livin’. And Jeans just made this week brighter yet with a stunning new batch of songs, this only one of the goods. 

Get the Totally LP now on Bndcmp. Pre-oders for the wax should be up from the Everloving vinyl shop soon!

Jeans Wilder - Gravity Bong

Now. Pay no attention to that song title. DO however pay attention to the fact I’ve listened to this song along with another of Jean Wilder’s ALOT. I mean a heap load. There is just something about it that attracts me like the tracker beam on the Death Star. Maybe it’s the fact it reminds me of early Panda Bear [I just went there]. Maybe it’s the simple codine driven doo-wop drum beat.

Pick up his album “totally” from bndcmp among 5 others. Also do check another more organic cut Slow Burn from this album it’s another mind bender.

About Marilyn Monroe:


“You mean you didn’t get annoyed when she was late?”

Billy Wilder:

“I understood the reasons for it.There was no use getting annoyed.  Even at the beginning, when I discovered that I had let myself in for a certain amount of trouble, I found myself liking her.  At no time did I find her malicious, mean, capricious or anything but conscientious.  There are certain urges and drives in her which make her different, but, as a director, I think it worth combating those things and living with them in order to work with her.”


Standing - Robert Mulligan, William Wyler, George Cukor, Robert Wise, Jean-Claude Carrière and Serge Silberman.

Sitting - Billy Wilder, George Stevens, Luis Buñuel, Alfred Hitchcock and Rouben Mamoulian.

One person in this mastershot is still alive…#Jean-Claude Carrière
(picture source: A Certain Cinema)

A story behind this wonderful picture (Jean-Claude Carrière—“I am the only one from this picture still alive”—gave his own account in the Telegraph)…
Two years after Tristana, the 72-year-old director was in Los Angeles to present his next film, The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie, at the L.A. Film Festival, and George Cukor, whom he had never met before, invited him to a lunch in his honor with “a few old friends” at his home in Bel Air. Until they arrived, Buñuel and Carrière had no idea that the guests would include the pantheon of Hollywood filmmaking. Carrière himself had the good sense to call up a photographer and document the gathering, which included (clockwise from top left) Robert Mulligan (Buñuel describes him as “a young director named Robert Mulligan” though he would have been 47 at the time), William Wyler, George Cukor, Robert Wise, Carrière, Buñuel’s producer Serge Silberman, Rouben Mamoulian, Alfred Hitchcock, Buñuel, George Stevens and Billy Wilder. And if that wasn’t enough, the space between Carrière and Silberman was left to represent John Ford, who had been at the lunch (Buñuel writes “we were the first to arrive at Cukor’s magnificent house, followed close behind by a large, muscular black man half-carrying an elderly gentleman with a patch over one eye. To my surprise, it was John Ford”) but didn’t stay long because of illness (he died the following year). What we wouldn’t all give to be at that lunch.

I could not be more pleased to present basically a dream of a lineup! All of these people have come to mean a lot to me over the last year. And all those internet minutes, and hours will finally come to fruition here on the west coast! So without further ado ::
