This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Looks cool, Evan!

Hi Zonk! I know there's so much, it could easily be a whole show... Though I don't think I have even half of his releases. Today I'm just sticking with what's been stuck in my head for the last few weeks.

as for the image, it's my main man Max Ernst

Heya Flash, all!
Avatar 7:06pm Flash Strap:

Perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised to see that this exquisite track has been played on WFMU more than a few times! Hope you all don't mind yet another spin... to aid in fostering a fresh listen, here's a (from the looks of it, a bit rough) english lyrics translation:

Peace to those who howl because they can see clearly
Peace to our sick souls, peace to our broken hearts
Peace to our tired, tattered limbs
Peace to our degenerated generations
Peace to the great confusion of misery
Peace to those who seek
Smashing their head against the walls
Peace to the anger of the hungry man
Peace to the hate, to the rage of the oppressed
Peace to those who work with their hands
Peace to this nature
That has always given us the best it had
That is necessary for any human being whoever he is
Peace to our bellies -
Giant reservoirs of academic trash
Peace to you, my friends, your tenderness is necessary for me
Peace and respect to every life
Peace to the fascination of fire,
Peace to the break of day at the fall of night
Peace to those who walk on roads
To the endless horizons
Peace to the working horse
Peace to the humble-born souls who generate nightmares
Peace to the rivers, to the seas, to the oceans
Who give birth to fishes that shine with gasoline
Peace to my mother
Whose sorrowful smile disappears when she's by her children
Peace to those who aren't here anymore
And to those who had worked hard all their lives waiting for better days

Avatar 8:16pm hyde:

@zonk haha, i'm broad brushing but it's kinda true. there's good reason that the worst, most dishonest people in a lot of spaghetti westerns (especially the Sergi Corbucci ones) are landowners and politicians and bankers

going back a bit, but that Bruno Nicolai...I really associate him so much more with horror movies. don't remember too many western soundtracks of his.

it's too bad Italian genre movies just cratered after the 80's. so vibrant in the 60's & 70's.

Hope it's in Criterion. We only have Filmstruck now.

Mercedes was really frightening in Touch of Evil!

Once Upon A Time would be on my list.

@UM i limited myself to one per director. i'm a Stagecoach guy, but i think of Ford as the God of all directors. i's have Liberty Valance on there too if not for that.

Once Upon A Time is basically a meta-Western
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Uncle Michael:

Yeah...Liberty for sure. Magnificent Seven...Shane
Avatar 9:29pm Flash Strap:

I think G,B,Ugly and Once Upon A Time are both better but Few Dollars More is the one that haunts me like a fever

Django is pretty high on my list, and maybe Navajo Joe, but I need to see that one again to make sure it's not just the soundtrack giving me fond memories... one of Morricone's coolest soundtracks

@Flash naw, Navajo Joe is really good. it's maybe not as good as The Great Silence, but otherwise one of Corbucci's best. Besides that one where Jack Palance is a pot smoking gunslinger in love with his falcon.

Sure...or a post-western...if that's a thing.

Avatar 9:34pm Flash Strap:

cool, thanks
Avatar 9:37pm Flash Strap:

@UM: yeah, right in there in the post-Peckinpah New Hollywood period with Butch Cassidy where every movie was really about how the western didn't work as a genre anymore because of Vietnam and the American Indian Movement. I quite like Little Big Man, I think it's pretty brilliant
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39pm Uncle Michael:

Pat Garrett and McCabe would also be post-westerns. The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing, Judge Roy Bean...
Avatar 9:39pm Flash Strap:

none of them have real memorable soundtracks though, except McCabe and Pat Garrett
Avatar 9:39pm hyde:

@UM i think many of the westerns made in the 70's are sort of post-westerns. Pat Garrett, Ulzana's Raid, The Shootist, Hired Hand, Hannie Caulder, The Great Northfield Minnesota Raid etc. They are all wrestling with the form in the age of Vietnam
Avatar 9:40pm Flash Strap:

haha look at that sych-up, UM

Judge Roy Bean! That's a weird one, never knew what to think of it
Avatar 9:40pm hyde:

except The Shootist, which is mostly wrestling with the western and the death of Old Hollywood

You guys might like The Big Trail, which is a b&w early John Wayne movie. Thought I'd hate it but it's really great.
Directed by Raoul Walsh.

The Cowboys was a big part of my childhood...the Bad News Bears of westerns.

@geezerette Big Trail is good. I read Raoul Walsh's autobio, which was hilariously entertaining and also a pack of lies
