A brief roundup of SJI-related material on my latest spin through YouTube:
Here’s a clip from a movie called Hot Tomorrows, from 1977, which I had never heard of. Wade into the scene a bit, and there is Oingo Boingo, with Danny Elfman lipsyncing a Cab Callow “SJI” take. Interesting makeup and whatnot. Bonus (I guess): Hervé Villechaize is in the scene.
A little while back I mentioned the Gutter Twins’ version of “SJI,” as performed live, anyway. I have to look into whether a studio version has emerged, but meanwhile, here’s somebody’s (I assume, based on the quality) bootleg video of a live take from April 2008.
Finally, you may recall way back when I did a Q&A here with the former September Rose, on the subject of “SJI” as burlesque music. Well, here is contemporary burlesque performance by someone named Charlotte Treuse, and a band called the Stolen Sweets. Apparently it was recorded at the Wonder Club, in Portland. Looks to be in line with the sort of contemporary hipster version of burlesque revival — sort of keeping in the old-school spirit of the genre, but with tattoos.
Now, I would say probably not suitable for viewing at work, or with kids. But it adheres to pasties-and-thong rules that I assume would keep it from actually being Rated R in a theatrical setting, for example. In other words, it’s not Bada Bing pole dancing, but … well, use your own judgment. Video after the jump.
