An update for Who Then, Now?
I used to endlessly watch the Who Then Now tape when I was younger. I know every second of that little doccumentary, all the little nuances shown by the band; all the little nuances on the tape, like that little bad spot of film that happens when they show the recording of Wicked (which I always thought was a defect on the tape I had until I got it on DVD and it was there, too) I'd try to watch it with friends, but they would get sick of me talking about what was happening, going to happen and my theories of the weird that are in the movie that are not discussed in the movie.
Anyhoo, what I am getting to is that I think that all the OG members of Korn and crew should get back togather and record an audio commentary track for the two Who Then Now films. Talk about some of the random and hilarious things that happen during the filming. Lets hear from the editor about why certain footage was shown, or hear from the camera person about what it was like to be following a band that was becoming the next big thing. Wouldn't it be cool to hear from Ross Robinson about how he got such emotion from JD? There is that one part in the movie when they are recording Kill You, and I always thought that it looked kinda like Ross was tormenting JD so he could get that powerful performance out of him and onto tape. What do you think its like for Korn to see themselves in their youth being hardcore drunks? What would they say about it? I want to know. So much has happened to each of them since the recordings of these two important pieces of Korn media, and I think it would just be a really wonderful thing to hear from the mouths of Korn just how things have changed, and maybe why they changed.
Who Then Now came out in 1997 and Deuce (Who Then Now II) was released in 2002. That is 10 and 15 years ago, respectivley. They have put out SIX albums since Deuce, so I'm sure, I'm just positive that they have more footage to put togather a new Who Then Now! And, just outta respect for the original being 15 years old, I think they can afford a Special Edition, or Anniversary Edition, Collector's Edition, call it what you will, I just think its time to give us an Updated version with all the bells and whistles: Commentaries, unseen footage, full performances of the live samples in the movie, picture galleries.....God, I could go on and on about his.
Anyhoo let me know what yall think aboot this. Shit come an talk to me even if you want to just talk about Who Then Now- one of Korn's most underrated releases.
