Shrouded Corpse Bathing While Hip Shaking

If I were asked to define irony I'd say 'it's like if the world's most populous Muslim country's film industry had a tradition of getting a Benetton mix of porn stars into its movies on a regular basis to generate box office hype'.

And then I read that Sasha Grey was in the Indonesian classic 'Shrouded Corpse Bathing While Hip Shaking'. Grey is to porn what David Haye is to boxing and Henry Rollins is to music - their performances are nasty but they're interesting and intelligent (and I mean nasty as in the Nasty Boys not Christina Aguilera).

Grey is something of a pioneer (not many people can boast they're in an industrial noise band, have a Steven soderburgh art film under their belt and drove eminem to suicide) but she's just one in a series of 'adult film' stars who have been in an Indo-horror-porn.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a clip on YouTube, so check out this classic Scandinavian scene from dumb and dumber:


  1. Ironic indeed, much like ten thousand spoons if all you needed was a knife.

  2. Oh mo, have I, like alanis morissette, misunderstood the definition of irony? How unscandinavian of me.
