Gupter Puncher [The Bill Murray Issue, no.7]

In Gupter Puncher/Oli Johns on August 24, 2010 at 2:09 pm

It starts with Bill Murray in black and white [drawn by Sarah E Melville!]

Then…

There’s Tomomi at the Cannes Film festa. Or it should’ve been. That all happened last May, and Tomomi was there…until being led away by Mad Vince Gallo to Padua and then the streets of Bologna. But she did see a couple of films, like Socialism by Godard, Blue Valentine with Ryan Gosling…as well as a couple on the horizon. [Green Hornet]

There’s also Jamie Foxx learning Spanish for Collateral.

Matt Damon slaughtering French in the Bournes.

Quentin Tarantino telling an interviewer to fuck him in Japanese.

And some other stuff along the same lines, all kinda linked with each other and-…

Then…

It kinda blows up on itself in the middle and goes in a whole other direction.

A direction which includes Bret Easton Ellis. And Milan Kundera. And Alain De Botton. And James Ellroy.

It’s all really hard to explain, and I don’t think I’m doing a very good job of it…but perhaps you get the idea?

Oh yeah…

There’s also something by Lenox Parker [Year Zero].

And Lawrence Gray [Year Zero].

And Marcella O Connor [Year Zero].

So…

It’s gonna be in various places around Hong Kong and New York [and London in November], and if none of those places are good for you then most of it will come up eventually on the website anyway.

  1. I pick up my copies from Club 71 every time it is published. I returned back to HK from summer holiday to find one copy left….waiting for me. It’s very creative and fun to read. This last one is the best so far….

  2. Club 71 is actually a tough place to get the mag into. The barwoman doesn’t like me, or she doesn’t like people. Or just me…I’ve been rude to her a couple of times, so i guess I’m lucky she takes it at all.

    The mags are trained to wait, even if spat on.
