Nitehawk’s highly anticipated (by us, anyway) screening of Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies drew a crowd that may or may not have ever seen Todd Phillips’s subsequent films (Old School, The Hangover, etc.) In front of us was a guy in a Mohawk, brazenly smoking a vaporizer. Then there was the guy in the Plato’s Retreat shirt. More →
First off, Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies is the best documentary of all-time. I know, I know: The Act of Killing, Man on Wire, Jodorowsky’s Dune… All of them are great, but do any of them show GG Allin, holed up in the St. Marks Hotel, maniacally chanting, “I HATE you motherfucker, I HATE you motherfucker”? This is the East Village way before Yoga for the People moved in a few doors down (though rest assured, you can still buy a GG Allin t-shirt and a choker on St. Marks. I did once, for Halloween.)

Nothing is real but the girl, but what about this?
That’s right: there’s now a Debbie Harry bobblehead. Till now, we’ve had to settle for the Debbie Harry Barbie, which, as you can imagine, looks pretty much like any other Barbie (which has confused a lot of folks who’ve seen it displayed in our office alongside our Ramones collection).
This new doll — limited to 1,000 2,000 units — is made by Drastic Plastic, creators of the Iggy Pop bobblehead, and it’s being shipped Monday by Aggronautix, makers of “throbbleheads” in the likeness of East Village punk legends GG Allin and Handsome Dick Manitoba. The Debbie doll will set you back $24.95 and can be ordered here.
