Settle down, ladies.

I think I've mentioned before that Predicate is an uncharacteristic post-2000 throwback in tone to his nihilistic and cruel much earlier work

Yea, I've always considered Predicate in the same vein as his Parasite writings in a way. That period from "Selfish, Little", "Predicate" and "C&C" I always label, as a whole, "True Crime revue with reviews" since each one has a supposed specific entity or lead (Lesley Ann Downey, Thomas Hamilton and Sarah Payne) like a true crime book, but then he also reviews some paintings, performance art, movies, actors, documentaries, a fucking boys choir, etc. plus the usual Sotos liaisons and points of reference to highlight and focus in and out on the subject at hand then threading it all together into a pretty little aesthetic bundle the way only he can. Probably my favorite era of his, actually. Though the more I read Mine, the text portions of KEPT and now going through "Desistance" for second readinf I really, really am loving his newer works ("newer" as in this decade/post-2010 material) as well.

Reading Pure Filth right now and it's interesting how Sotos, because of the subject and the potentially wider audience (maybe), widens his tone into something slighty more anecdotal, less percussive and labyrinthine. He says some great things about words versus image in relation to pornography and these films in particular. Reading the straight transcripts of the Gillis films is a weird experience, with the words and conversation brought into sharp focus and the blowjobs and sloppy fucks made secondary.

Yea,  it sure is. The transcript layout always reminds me of being in 2nd grade rehearsing lines for some dumb holiday play we'd have to put on for our parents. Not that it's intentional, the layout not the memories. No other way you could really transcribe a video or audio clearly to text, though if anyone could have done it, Sotos would be the man.

It's a shame the woman interviewing him is such an idiot. It's like everything Sotos says goes straight past her, you can just hear he doesn't want to be there.

The yahoo group dedicated to him had some scans or his earlier stuff in. Dunno if it is still up.

Yeah I don't think the girl is stupid particularly.  Just unfamiliar with the subject.  I think the interview is remarkable for the degree that Sotos actually explains what the project of Pure Filth is in clear terms; the project's components, his intentions and relationship to the material and to Gillis personally, and the process of the book's construction.  I think at one point Parfrey even comments that this is as succinct as he's ever heard Sotos be on the subject.  This isn't something you get from Sotos normally in such straightforward terms; it's refreshing to albeit briefly engage with his intellect here without the normal obstacles his writing is cluttered with.

Just found this while browsing YouTube. Interview  (although it barely deserves the term) with PS on the Howard Stern Show  (!). Pretty annoying and pompous behaviour by Stern, but maybe interesting as an anecdote:

Makes sense to me. Most people wouldn't want to chat with someone who admits to owning child porn.

Sure, the reaction is pretty understandable. Then again, why invite him to the show and give him a platform in the first place? Seems kind of ambiguous to me. I don't really know much about the way Stern's show is built up, though. Maybe controversy is an integral part or something?

I thought maybe the girl's nativity gave him a specific audience to reach and that was why he expressed himself in such clear terms.
