Get Mad

“I don’t have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It’s a depression. Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel’s work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there’s nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there’s no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that’s the way it’s supposed to be. We know things are bad – worse than bad. They’re crazy. It’s like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, ‘Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won’t say anything. Just leave us alone.’ Well, I’m not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest. I don’t want you to riot – I don’t want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you’ve got to get mad. You’ve got to say, ‘I’m a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!’ So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, ‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: ‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’

– Peter Finch as Howard Beale in Network (1976)

DVD DROPS…

We have some new arrivals at the Space, this time in DVD format. First we have The Universe of Keith Haring, a film by Christina Clausen…

this documentary offers an exclusve and intimate look into Haring’s life, from growing up in a small town in Pennsylvania, to his heyday as a world-renowned artist, and also features interviews with Fab 5 Freddy, David LaChapelle, Yoko Ono, and more. The next arrival is A Walk into the Sea: Danny Williams and the Warhol Factory, by Esther B. Robinson…

the film is Robinson’s personal investigation into the disappearance of her uncle, Danny Williams, a promising filmmaker as well as Andy Warhol’s lover. Thirty-five years later, Robinson’s discovery of 20 extraordinary never-before-seen films and her own interviews of surviving Factory members have culminated into this deep exploration of family and art. The last, but not least, arrival is Beautiful Losers, by Aaron Rose…

the documentary focuses on the careers and work of Thomas Campbell, Cheryl Dunn, Shepard Fairey, Harmony Korine, Geoff McFetridge, Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Steven “Espo” Powers, Aaron Rose, Ed Templeton and Deanna Templeton. Through a series of interviews, these artists explain their reasoning behind their “do-it-yourself” style of street art beginning in the 1990’s, as well as the influences behind their art stemming from skateboarding, graffiti, and underground music such as punk-rock and hip-hop circulating throughout the time period. Come check out these great flicks, now available at the Space.
