Mary Millingtons True Blue Confessions (1980)

Mary Millingtons True Blue Confessions (1980)

The interviews might not feel the most relaxed, the soundtrack's sometimes a bit strange (but still awesome - it's the eighties), and the story doesn't feel entirely complete but... it's about Mary Millington! A pornstar I'm not sure I'd ever heard of before, who lived on the bright between sexual liberation and degeneration, and committed suicide 1979, only 33 years old. Ten years before I was even born.

Judging by included voice recordings she might not have been the smartest individual, but she seemed to be a warm one, and what a bod! What a shame they didn't know proper make-up was back in the day (clarification: either have none at all or do it better), and that British accents (at least at the time) seem to necessitate a certain downward lip curl for certain dialog which looks a bit strange.

I don't mean to be judgmental though. Fascinating person; decent homage, done in a way I think would've been very very different today.

Also interesting to get a glimpse into the sex scene in England - or Europe at all for that matter - when today for some reason most of it seems to be centered on the US.

Emanuelle In America (1977)

Emanuelle In America (1977)

The plot's a bit flimsy, but I guess that's really not an issue with softcore porn is it?

This is basically that. The story of Emanuelle, a dark-skinned exotic girl with a liberal sexual hunger, who hangs around with eccentrics. Guys, and girls, and couples, and has intimate moments all whilst digging up truths about them and putting them in the papers.

She has a boyfriend who lives a similar life. They're refreshingly free, and it ends in a flimsy but conclusive way on a tribal beach... wonder what that part was really all about. The next movie, as it commences within the current movie, maybe...? Or maybe it's totally irrelevant after all.

It just dawned on me that it's the seventies too, so maybe this isn't porn after all. Maybe it's just as abstract and exploratory as it sometimes seems to be. The sexual liberation act - freedom of a woman - all easy to follow on film.

It's not bad either. Laura Gemser's easy on the eyes and fun to follow - not the best actress though she may be, and it's good to be reminded there was a time when we were all humans. Hungrier, not totally waxed, and not so distanced from the fun it seems like the world's turned totally depraved the last few decades.

Anyway: good movie. Rich locales. Plenty of intrigue. I miss the times when even movies like this could be creative, and uphold some kind of budget and class. It's not just all about that ass.

Leffe's Letter

I don't know the range of my hearing. And they don't know the power of my voice.

If you're tired of the same old same old when it comes to comics, maybe you'd like to give this curiously contemplative, creative fifteen page testament to the depressed dog Leffe a shot. :)

Fellow Swede and visual artist behind aforementioned venture Holy Konni left an appreciative tweet on my review of it here, so it only feels right I share this in return! The page pictured above's one of my favorites.

It's quite nice. A quick read. Available on Webtoons or Tapas.

Maybe you'll relate. But maybe life's great.

But still: potential wisdom glistens.


Altered Ancient Gears 2 Title Screen

Remember that ambitious JRPG I mentioned here just a while back?

It's out! It has as of the first this month officially been released, free for all! You can get it not only for Windows but also both Mac and Linux.

Click those links for instant downloads! The little hub here should be updated soon too, with these same links and some more info regarding DLC content. Among other things. Spoilers possible.

If you want to get into more of the lore or reach out to developer extraordinaire Sai feel free to check out the official AAG page here.

Or just dive into the game. There's an interactive pamphlet of sorts with backstory and character bios included there as well. Note that there may be typos, as the game is as expansive as it is and release came before total revision, but hopefully it's never to the point it distracts from the story.

There are now also three DLC packs included - for anyone who seeks stronger foes than are available with the main story - and more may get added if there's a demand for it. You should be able to just carry over your save file to the next update if so.

A walkthrough and guide for the game is currently in the works as well! Was planning on trying something similar myself but looking at this realistically Sai will probably provide one waaay before I do.

Last but not least I now have an official spot in the credits. :) Can't wait to play through and see that for myself as soon as time allows, but don't wait on me now! Go get it! Links above!

Feel free to share the game with friends and anyone you know that might enjoy it, and let Sai know if you appreciate it or want more!

I'll update this when I get to updating that hub. Till then: Enjoy!
