There's A Lot of Hate in Your Love
I have spotlighted the gorgeous and haunting song “Not Waving But Drowning” by my former West Village tenant Alex Zapak before. Alex, known as The Countess, is a rock and roll chick with a soul singer’s voice, a punk attitude, and a thrift shop wardrobe.
She’s made an out-there art film that makes me miss her here in NYC. In her words, and using her spelling and punctuation, she states:
epic!! the astounding debut semi autobiographical lo -fi epic created despite zero budget ,
written , directed , performed photographed ,drawn, painted, art-directed, styled, animated ,edited produced ,composed and sung by countess alex zapak. shot using laptop apple mac photo booth application and cellphone camera.. plus contributions from frederico fellini jon houston , starring jim morrison as a jesus , marilyn monroe and brigitte bardot as the fairy princesses in the’ toxic bedtime story that never sleeps ( the media)’ and introducing the radiant angelic ava miller as childhood ,
and a horse as,.. er ..um … god
It’s trippy and fantastic and so totally fairytale punk.
