Hey All [05 Aug 2012|08:43am]

I am actually looking to reconnect with people I knew long, long ago (back when this place was at its original website). It's been about 10 years or more since then, probably, so I've no idea if any of you are still here. I think my username back in those days was asellus or aselly.

Mostly I'm hoping to find someone who went by "Z" or sometimes "Ashton."

I know it's a longshot but you never know....

PS - Hello to everyone I don't know yet. :)

Velvet Goldmine Fanlisting Update [07 Nov 2005|02:32am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Good News:

I have upgraded the Velvet Goldmine fanlisting so that keeping member information up-to-date will be so much easier.


Bad news:

The original 603 members that were hand entered are not in the new member database. There's a way to convert the HTML file and import the information into the database, but I don't have the time or patience right now.

So if you were one of the original members (and you didn't receive an email about the site from me today), please go and join again.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a Velvet Goldmine related literary essay? I showed my English/ history teacher part of the movie and it piqued his curiosity, so he suggested I do my paper on it; I just don't have many ideas for an actual thesis. Oscar Wilde parallels would work, but that subject's been done to death. Also, I'm afraid real life parallels might overlap too much with the history paper I just did about drugs and the music industry in the 60s and 70s. So, yes. Thesis/ discussion ideas would be much appreciated.

.....I love how I never post in communities, then randomly delurk and do two posts in two days. X-posted.

Somewhat off topic [20 Apr 2005|09:38pm]

I'm noticing a severe lack of glam rock related RPS. I mean, there's loads of Velvet Goldmine stuff around, but no RPS and it's actually kind of freaking me out. I couldn't find a single archive with Bowie-et-al slash from back in the good old days. So, what gives? Does anyone have any sites to recommend- or would there be interest in creating an LJ community or archive?

And just so that this isn't totally offtopic, I have Velvet Goldmine icons here, in the icons section of my site.

new member alert! [19 Apr 2005|10:01pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

Hi there, I just joined the other day. Not a lot of activity around here but I thought I'd hop aboard anyway. *waves* Huge VG fan blah, blah, blah... that's not true, it doesn't deserve a "blah, blah, blah." That movie changed my life and it means the world to me.

Anyway, I thought I'd be bold and daring and make one public post in my own journal so I could share some of the VG icons/friends only banners that I made. click

Take them, use them, stuff them in your pocket for a rainy day. Whatever. ;) Comments and credit would be a kind gesture if you do decide to snag anything.

There are quite a few other non-VG related things there so if they aren't your thing, just pass 'em by.

Enjoy! :)

Pics of Ewan in the movie? [14 Jan 2005|02:26pm]

Specifically pictures of him naked onstage.

I remember a site from a while ago, that had pictures of Ewan stripping in the concert scene. It also had shots of many other celebrities who were naked (at least bare-chested) in movies.

Can anyone help me find this site again, or even one like it?

The one I'm thinking of had houseguests in the name, I believe.

Thank you,

sexiest scenes [28 Nov 2004|03:44am]

[ mood | contemplative ]

Hi, all. We all know that Velvet Goldmine is a sexy movie from start to finish, but I'd like anyone's feedback on what you feel are the sexiest scenes and why. Here's my take on it:
1)When Curt is laying between the two groupies, and his eyes cross and his head drops back. I just want to take care of him. 2)Brian's seductive expression onstage when he catches Cecil checking him out for the first time. 3)The way Arthur looks at Curt backstage at the Death of glitter concert. Eyes buring thru him. 4)When Curt runs his thumb over Arthur's lip.5)Brian and the blooming flower scene in the Ballad of Maxwell Demon video.6)When Curt starts smashing glass in the studio.7)When Mandy is doing Brian's make-up in bed.8)When Brian is singing Ladytron to Mandy. He looks at her so intensely and then there is that black cape he's wearing.Sigh.9)In 1984, when Arthur looks at himself in the mirror, remembering the past.10)When Malcolm sucks on his finger during "20th Century Boy". I deliberately left out the most obvious sexy scenes for fun, and to make you guys think! LOL

Hey, new here. I'm currently on a quest to find a Brian Slade tour shirt. It's seen in scene 5 of the movie, it's just a white shirt with a black rectangle in the middle that has "Brian Slade" on it in an odd, red font. If anyone knows where I could get one (or preferably two) or could do a nice design to immitate it, that would be unspeakably awesome. Thanks.

I love Velvet Goldmine. I haven't watched it enough. I just joined this community and wanted to see what's up. Is there anyone in the community who is in California?

1. OMG. Does that pin remind you of anything? It certainly reminds me of the one in VG. I want it. Damn that I have next to no money.

2. Did some VG Friends only bannersCollapse )
Credit me if you take. ;)

3. is still seeking new members. We need mainly a Mandy, Jerry, Shannon and some more supporting roles ie groupies or band members.

(Cross posted and please don't kill me for RPG pimping. *hides*)

Golden Years RPG [21 Feb 2004|10:27pm]


Golden Years is a brand new Velvet Goldmine RPG, played on Greatest Journal. It is just starting out and consequently needs every character except Arthur. However, this RP has been described as being "full of promise"- so come check us out! And should you want to join, you can E-mail me or contact me at teenagedwildlife on AIM.

I really hope this isn't against the community rules, as a) the post does deal with Velvet Goldmine and b) it will hopefully interest people and not be considered spam. =)

Maxwell Demon Brian
Ballad of Maxwell Demon Brian!

You came down like water to take over the world.
You enjoy wandering around white rooms, but
disapprove of green clones of yourself lurking
inside dollshouses. Your essential accessories
are purple platform boots, and ridiculously
long cigarette holders.

Which Brian Slade are you?

Hey daaaahhlings, lol!

Just wondered, does anyone have any ideas on why Brian left when Curt was performing Gimme Danger? And since we (or... I anyway) know that she saw Brian there, why did she tell Curt she didnt?!

Oh and one last thing, when did Mandy and Curt become such good buddies?!

Interesting... [11 Jan 2004|11:35am]

[ mood | blank ]

Okay, so can anyone tell me exactly how Oscar Wilde ties into Jack Fairy and Curt Wilde? Just curious, because I've seen VG a few times, but I'm still lost.

And really guys, the whole 'let's get some special features on that DVD' thing is SUCH a good idea. ;)
