Young to attend Human Highway screening at SXSW

Neil Young in Human HighwayNeil Young will be in Austin, Texas on Thursday, March 19 to attend a screening of his 1982 movie “Human Highway.”

According to Noise 11, “Human Highway” will screen at the Paramount on Congress at 5 p.m. in Austin and it will be followed by a Q & A session with Young himself.

Young starred in and co-directed with his friend Dean Stockwell the alternative-comedy, bizarre, eclectic movie that featured appearances by Young, Stockwell, Devo and Randy Hopper. In the movie Young sings “Hey, Hey, My, My” with Devo.

60s fold singer David Blue also made an appearance in the movie. He died shortly after in 1982.

The movie received poor reviews and was once released on VHS video but has not resurfaced yet on DVD or Blue-Ray.

(Maybe it will be on PONO)

Young plays Lionel Switch, a nerdy gas station attendant who dreams of being a rock star.

Neil Young, others, send message to Obama: Stop the Keystone Pipeline

Now that the Oscars are over, Hollywood is turning its attention to the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.

A slate of actors and musicians, including Julianne Moore, Alec Baldwin, Robert Redford, Willie Nelson, and Neil Young called on President Obama on Tuesday to put an end to the oil-sands project once and for all, according to keystone-pipeline

“Rejecting Keystone XL is the kind of the principled choice leaders need to make. There is no way to reconcile this pipeline with a serious climate policy,” the high-profile activists wrote in a letter to the White House signed by more than 100 environmentalists, elected officials, and progressive leaders.

You can sign the letter here: http://350.org/unityletter/

The cadre of celebrities has a history of opposing the pipeline. But the latest Hollywood push arrives ahead of an expected presidential veto of legislation approved by the GOP Congress to build Keystone XL, a pipeline that would haul crude oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

Obama’s veto could land as early as Tuesday, after Republicans send the bill to the White House.

Secret Squirrel selling Supreme T Posters for sale at $450?

Surpeme T-shirtA 28-year-old graphic designer who wants to be called “Secret Squirrel,” has been ripping down posters of Neil Young wearing the Supreme T-shirt he modeled for, and selling them for up to $450.

According to New York Magazine’s website “The Cut”  the posters featuring a photograph of 69-year-old folk rocker Neil Young,  are  Supreme’s only method of advertising, but thanks to the brand’s cultish devotees, there was a line around the block outside the Lafayette Street store when the spring/summer 2015 collection went on sale recently.

Secret Squirrel:  “I went on eBay and saw someone else listing one of these for $150, Buy It Now! And I was like, ‘Shit, I should go get more.’ I knew it would go for dough. So I went out and got 25.”

He listed a few of his posters on eBay. The bidding on one of the posters is up to $51.00. For this “tryptic” [sic], i.e., three posters stuck together, the Secret Squirrel is asking $450. “There’s one that’s at $11.50, but they all have 10 or 12 watchers each, and I’ve been getting a lot of messages about them,” he says. “You can’t buy these anywhere else. Supreme doesn’t sell them. Maybe they would give them out to friends and family of the store, but those people wouldn’t sell them,” he added. (This might not exactly be true. One seller is selling two brand-new posters, never wheat-pasted, for $300 each.)
