oh this is ever so cool. look what I just found in the StudioCloset.
the rubberneck guitar from laurie anderson's home of the brave movie.
it's amazing. it was in 1985 we made the movie (still not available on DVD)
before we began our month+ of filming, the propmasters byron lovelace and michael benson
asked if they could make me something special.
"oh yes, please", I said, "how about a rubberneck guitar"?
the first two they made were, how should I put it...flaccid.
so they came up with the brilliant! idea of putting metal vertabrae inside the rubber.
later I used the rubberneck guitar in the video for oh daddy
and received a chastizing formal complaint from some old clam
in canada saying I was vulgar.
speaks volumes about her thoughts, not mine.
it's such a fabulous prop, too bad you can't actually play it.
