Meanwhile In France

The Dissident Frogman

Has some interesting things to say about caring and compassionate musicians and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

"That said, to find "no message" in a 1974 independent movie (the important words are "independent" and "1974") staging a group of hippies suddenly confronted to a bunch of unprincipled wackos focused on the idea of hunting and eating anything that runs on two legs and utterly immune to the virtue of unilateral peace, love (Imagine all the people. In the seasoning bowl) as well as 12 years plus 19 UN resolutions (it's just an example), frankly, one has to watch this movie in a very superficial way."

"Or be a former - or 'neo' - love loving hippy I guess."

"These poor peaceful 'methodically hunted down and disposed of in brutal fashions' young people. How sick! How vile! How immoral!"

"Can you please put down that chainsaw and stop eating the fleshy love children of peace Mr. Leatherface?"

"Tell you what: I'm afraid the Texas Chainsaw Massacre's message is still cruelly valid these days."
