Martha Thomases: Sweet Lou

1 November 2013 5:42 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Word of Lou Reed’s death spread across the Internet on Sunday. For me, it was Sunday afternoon, so I can’t make this allusion. Nor will I call it a perfect day.

That’s what Lou Reed was to me. From the time his first album came out, he provided not only a soundtrack for my life, but a running commentary. His New York-inflected nasal vocals seemed to perfectly capture my own yearning for something I couldn’t define, but wanted desperately.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, this made me unusual, especially in Ohio, where I lived. Lou had a hit in the mid-1970s, but there still weren’t a lot of people who would admit to liking him. I can only believe that people bought “Walk on the Wild Side” without acknowledging that they knew it was about drag queens.

He wrote about drag queens, »

Lou Reed on Lou Reed During Filming of 'Get Crazy,' on Charlie Rose, American Masters, Arcade Fire Tribute Updated (Video)

30 October 2013 10:24 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When I first came to Los Angeles in my 20s I worked on the sets of a few movies as a unit publicist, among them director Allan Arkush's 1983 rock musical "Get Crazy," which starred Malcolm McDowell and Lou Reed. I was in awe of the taciturn legendary rocker, who turned up on the Wiltern Theatre set in beat-up jeans, boots and leather jacket, knew his lines and was a total pro. Arkush ("Heroes," "Crossing Jordan") sent me a remembrance of working with Reed after his death at age 71 on Sunday: I vividly remember this conversation with Lou Reed on the set of 'Get Crazy' in 1982. I asked Lou when it first struck him that he was indeed 'Lou Reed.' He told me that starting with "Transformer" in 1972, people came up to him on the street all the time and shared drug experiences or stories of being on the »

Mike Gold: A Condo On The Wild Side

30 October 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

As you may have heard, singer/songwriter/occasional actor Lou Reed died last Sunday.

This didn’t come as much of a surprise. Several months ago, ComicMix’s own Martha Thomases had a swell birthday party at a wonderful-yet-foo-foo West Village Manhattan restaurant. As we left we walked through the massive line waiting to get in and I passed by a guy I thought I knew or recognized. Embarrassed, I waited until we were outside before I asked Martha if she knew who that was. She stopped, stared for a second, and said “Oh my god, that’s Lou Reed.”

Lou looked like shit – well-coiffed shit, but still… A week later we heard he was in for a liver transplant. Ultimately, it was that transplant that led to his death.

Martha and I share another Lou Reed moment, this one with fellow ComicMixer John Ostrander. You see, there is this »

Podcast: Matthew McConaughey's Streak of Challenging Roles and Remembering Lou Reed

29 October 2013 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

On this week's Voice Film Club podcast, our critics discuss the upcoming Dallas Buyers Club, the late Lou Reed, 1983's Get Crazy, 1979's The Visitor, and 2008's In Bruges. Matthew McConaughey extends his streak of taking on challenging roles in Dallas Buyers Club (out November 1), playing AIDS victim, entrepreneur, and ad-hoc activist Ron Woodruff. "I used to hate [McConaughey] with an unholy passion and partly because I hated the characters he played who were just so smarmy and so certain they were so good looking and so charming," says the Village Voice's Zacharek. "And on one hand, you don't want to hold that against an actor, but it's li »

Lou Reed Dies

27 October 2013 9:17 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Even though his impact in front of the camera was rarely felt, the music and mood of Lou Reed has had a staggering influence on film soundtracks through the years. So it’s with heavy hearts that we report the rock pioneer has died at the age of 71.Born in Brooklyn in 1942, he got into song writing early, kicking off his career after university working at novelty records label Pickwick. After befriending John Cale, he formed a band called the Primitives, which would mutate into the Warlocks and then the incredibly influential Velvet Underground, with whom he would have some of his earliest hits.Reed split from the band in 1970 and struck out on his own as a solo singer, producing such memorable albums as Transformer, Berlin and Metal Machine Music.Film-wise, he’s cropped up in movies such as 1980’s One Trick Pony (written by and starring) Paul Simon, »

While I have learned to put up with people talking during trailers, I still don't like it. I want to see and hear about the great movies that are coming out. And I know many people who love to look at old commercials that have found their way onto YouTube. So why not make a night of it, of trailers and ads, and throw in strange 80s music comedy Get Crazy starring Daniel Stern, Malcolm McDowell and Lou Reed? This is all happening next Wednesday, April 10th, at the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square.
