Vincent Gallo. Nothing else. My plan to collect all things I find about him just because that's what I do, collecting.
It was the pic. Here, he isn't yellow, thank God.
essential killing goes to venice too!!
just read in a bunch of places that they are filming in Providence.

Wow! Wyclef Jean. I wonder what VG thinks about this.
This blog needs to be private
This blog needs to be private+2I'm willing to sign up or do what ever. I only use anonymous 'cos I'm so damn lazy. What do you think, Mel? Go private or keep as is?♥♥♥♥
You just have to ignore the wierdness. They love that you are upset about their silliness. I like being anonymous.
I like being anonymous too. I fall a bit ill. Mel, before I gou to bed, do you feel Vincent makes good hubby material?
Mel, does Vincent has a good heart? Can you tell?
Mel, are you going to Venice?
another pic of vg on here http://aniphyo.com/blog/archives/1020

Essential Killing at venice too. I wish I was there. http://www.indiewire.com/article/venice_adds_essential_film_to_competition/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_content=Twitter
I was feeling nostalgic for RRIICCEE this morning, so I did some google-digging.Remember the girl Rebecca Casabian? I've tried to find out more about her a million times, which was always impossible. It turns out her real name is Becky Calinsky. She plays cello, has shown her visual art at some galleries in LA, and has a (locked) Facebook.http://thekonspiracyth3ory.blogspot.com/2009/12/becky-cello.htmlHere's a message board with a bunch of people's inane prattle (he's a republican!, he's an asshole!, he sold his semen!, etc). But there's a guy who sold him an expensive guitar which turned into some big ordeal, and claims VG owns about half a mil worth of these guitars. http://www.modern-radio.com/board/t.php?id=37937An article I am unfamiliar with, where he talks about his mother being from PA, and having to sneak out to concerts as a boy in Buffalohttp://articles.mcall.com/2007-12-08/features/3855254_1_music-first-night-timesAlso the RRIICCEE website is completely dead and gone (has it been for a while?), but the Internet Archive has caches of most of it. It's been dead since summer 2008 apparently.
Anon,The picture of him on that woman's raw good blog is a great find. I see he is wearing that Masonic necklace/pendant again (or was in May).
really its a masonic necklace? What does it mean? I've always wondered about that. oh and does everyone know that essential killing is going to be in venice also!
lots of guys wear those kind of necklace.
have a great day! MUAH =)
Re: the Mason necklaceanother photo of him wearing it in Milan at that Hugo Boss show in 2008 http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_EL9QN2W97Dk/SOH3GkAkcvI/AAAAAAAAABA/Z4zc0MhHWXY/s1600-h/82944897.jpghttp://4.bp.blogspot.com/_EL9QN2W97Dk/SOH2-SvnaZI/AAAAAAAAAA4/sxDywVTZnFc/s1600-h/82944853.jpgHe was also wearing it during the s/s 2008 season shows for NYFW (which took place in September 2007). This was the Marc Jacobs show when he was siting near Heath Ledger and Michael Stipe, hanging out with Kim Gordon. And also the threeasfour show. There's a bunch of pictures on style.com where it's clearly visible,http://www.style.com/slideshows/fashionshows/S2008RTW/TAF/BACKSTAGE/00370m.jpghttp://www.style.com/slideshows/fashionshows/S2008RTW/MJACOBS/BACKSTAGE/00320m.jpgI can't think of any earlier photos of him wearing it. For example during the Cannes/BB release days, when he was being photographed and in the press a lot, I don't ever remember seeing it.It's clearly a pendant with the Masonic "square and compass" symbol on it (http://i38.tinypic.com/2rnhdth.jpg). What it means to him is anyone's guess. No idea if he is a Mason or just into the symbolism, and I don't think anyone has ever asked him about it in an interview or anything.I would definitely say lots of guys don't just wear "those kind of necklace". Especially VG, who is a very aesthetically deliberate person.
Three films in Venice?? What is his short film the agent about?http://www.ioncinema.com/news/id/5401/make-that-three-gallo-films-in-venice-jerzy-skolimowskis-essential-killing-added-to-comp
i have wondered about it too. I wonder if he will come on this board and tell us what it all means. he never does anything without purpose, the whole main idea about his work, why he doesn't consider himself an artist because artists work without knowing at first what they are attempting to do, he knows in detail the reasons why and how to create his work even down to the color of the cables he uses when recording music. everything seems to have a reason to him.so Vincent Gallo why are you wearing the masonic necklace?
I bet he didn´t even knew it was a masonic symbol before I mentioned it.
it is a gift from someone close to his heart.
ah. now i love him even more.
is that possible?
in venice will also be his new short "the agent":http://www.labiennale.org/en/cinema/festival/lineup/off-sel/orizzonti/orizzonti.html?currentpage=2trailer for essential killing, film with vg just selected for venice as well:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0CR2N4xbfQ
whole lotta wourk
if I walk around Venice, will I bump into Vincent?
I com here to get updates of Vincent work, but the more I study about his career it kinda give me lil chills, specially his stalkers, (excuse me) fans.
I must confess virtually private, I do frequently have non stop dirty sexy dreams with Vincent. Does anyone ever feel the same?
http://www.vbs.tv/watch/art-talk/lance-acordHere's a vid where Lance Acord briefly talks about shooting Buffalo 66....PS - an identical necklace he wears he was selling on vgmerchandise.com (site is messed up now?) I thought it was something from when he was baptised or christianed (whatev, I'm not relgious/catholic/italian, dunno) as a kid.
MY GOOOOOOD: "Vincent called me back and said one day you will have to explain to your grandchildren why you pass to shooting my movie and you will have to deal with that, you will have to explain you could have shot Buffalo 66"
I remember the necklace and other things he was selling from his childhood, I don't remember the Masonic necklace being among it or anything else Masonry related. A Masonic symbol wouldn't really be a typical gift for a baptism, but anything is possible, and my memory may be mistaken. I feel like that necklace he was selling was some kind of religious article, like a rosary or scapula? I really don't remember though.To the commenter calling his fans "stalkers", I wonder if that is directed at me? Since I had just posted all those photos of him wearing a tiny necklace over the years? I am very far from a stalker, and have a whole life outside of the internet and VG. I also happen to have a strong visual memory and a talent for collecting and organizing things. I know a lot of stuff and have lots of photos and obscure things relating to him. Plain and simple. I have no interest in or delusions of being close to him (or any public figure), as an actual stalker would. The commenter/s on here who constantly post weird nonsense ramblings, off-topic personal information, and talking about sexual fantasies, etc are a whole different issue. I feel weird defending myself, but the comments section of this blog gets more and more unhinged, and I am not interested in being a part of that.
Old Hand - don't worry about the people who bitch around. I sort of can't keep up with deleting everything so let's just ignore it and still enjoy the fun on here. I don't think it was addressed to you - I hope it wasn't because, just like you, I think there is a difference between stalking someone and collecting things, being interested and passionate about something. I think the more "brainy" people on here do know that you are a good person and not a stalker and I personally really treasure and value your contribution on here :)
Plus I just deleted some comments on here - not because they were evil or something, they just don't have anything to do with the topic. I don't like being all strict, but this is not the place to talk about your days or whatever, it's a blog on all things Gallo. I am actually thinking about opening a thread just for all the more chatty stuff...
the comment about stalkers: really its been my experience that when someone feels the need to insult others, especially strangers it is because they are like that themselves. There is alot of truth in the projection theories.that people project their own traits and faults upon others. I do not think any of us are stalkers, i'd be worried about that person though. It is extremely interesting pointing out vg wears masonic imagery, and all about his three films in venice. His interviews and lack thereof if he was a cultural figure from a different century or time period we would want to find out all of this as well. It has nothing to do with stalking. I found a twitter post about how he is a president of a homeowners association, it would be stalking if I put that posting up here. it does not have anything to do with his work or his public cultural persona.
okay I see the term "stalker" is a touchy subject.

Hello Everyone! Hello Mel! I love your blog. Please don't go private!I have two requests from the Gallo Community:Does anyone have access to the 2 part Vincent KCRW audio interview?Does anyone have access to the Brown Bunny Commentary?Vincent's interviews are so fascinating (I've recently been going through Archive.org/gallappreciation.com for lost interviews) Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Hey Mel, what happened to all the media links in this thread?http://whyvincentgallo.blogspot.com/2009/11/watch-it-while-its-there.htmlI was going to direct Matt C to all the goodies that got posted in the comments section but they've disappeared! Is this a system glitch again?♥♥♥♥
Sorry, had to go back after a while and delete those for reasons of being safe when it comes to copyright issues and so on :( You can post those things, but they can't stay for too long I'm afraid.
wondering if anyone knows about the film Sean Lennon made with Vincent Gallo? I think they filmed it in Vancouver a few years ago.
