TWO FIRES AND A CAR CRASH

From Page Six of the New York Post:

Friends of burned-out boy genius Harmony Korine, 25, are worried he might not recover from his latest downward spiral. For the past few months, the Gummo director’s life has been a series of mishaps. While staying at his grandmother’s house in Connecticut, he managed to start a fire and burn it down, killing her dog. The next place he landed also went up in flames. Then he had a big smash-up on the FDR Drive. A pal confirms Korine’s in “bad shape,” but notes, “I don’t think he actually set the fires.” Korine, who has run out of money, no longer has any reps and could not be reached.

VARIOUS MAGAZINE MENTIONS

The August issue of The Face with it’s hot/not barometer rates bunny ears highly, saying, “Think Gummo, not Playboy: `a la Moldy Peaches and Seelenluft.” Kids is mentioned in last May’s issue of Spin, with its feature “The Skate-Time Continuum” offering a brief history of skateboarding in the form of a chart. An event’s place on the chart was determined by the level of exposure it gave skateboarding. Kids came second lowest, just above 2001, when “ex-pro boarder Jason Lee plays Tom Cruise’s best friend in Vanilla Sky.” There were many high-points, including the MTV debut of Jackass and the creation of the first pro board. Australia’s Empire also made mention of Kids recently, with their “10 Great Movie:” section featuring “Evil Children” and listing Telly, who they say “wasn’t smacked hard enough the day he was born. Loves deflowering virgins without a condom – and spreading HIV.”
