Like all mighty global powers--as well as a variety of tin-pot dictatorships--The United Provinces of Ivanlandia keeps an embassy in NYC.
Although the swine at the UN have so far refused to recognize the moral, mental, scientific and philosophical superiority of The United Provinces of Ivanlandia, our glorious nation expects its seat in the General Assembly and the Security Council any day now. Be that as it may, the Ivanlandia High Command has moved the embassy north, very north.
In other good news, one of Ivanlandia’s favorite films, Robert Altman’s Brewster McCloud (with a screenplay by Skidoo scribe Doran William Cannon!!!), is now finally available on DVD. This makes me so happy, I could just shit in my pants.
That was my original idea for the title of this blog, a sort of summation of nearly everything I'd ever wanted cinematically: regularly playing on the ABC Channel 7 4:30 movie--or on WOR-TV Channel 9's 4 O'Clock Movie--the greatest monster movie in the universe, and incredible combo of miniatures, men in suits and stop motion, with entire continents destroyed!
But then there was a coup d'etat, and Tzar Ivan I of Ivanlandia took charge.
