Degrees: “boylorne’s inevitable superstardom” edition

DEGREES: The feature where we use our brushes with celebrity to Kevin Bacon our way to director and noted terrible person, Uwe Boll.

You guys, boylorne is totes famous, 4 rlz.

Here’s why: The White Stripes’ “Under Great White Northern Lights” documents the band’s summer 2007 tour across Canada and contains live concert and off-stage footage. During the tour, the band played a “one-note show” — a very short free concert consisting of just a single note — which appears at the start of the film. The one-note show is featured in the first 30 seconds of the movie:

Unedited footage, you guys.

Who is that fresh-face, and is not too commercial or catalogue, but evokes high-fashion? Why, it’s boylorne.

Anyway, boylorne was within metres of Jack White, one half of the White Stripes, who recorded “Van Lear Rose” with Loretta Lynn.

Loretta Lynn appeared in “Johnny Cash’s America”, which also featured Snoop Dogg. In this next  clip, Snoop appears more lucid than he does in the entirety of “Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror”.

And Snoop Dogg was featured in “Pauly Shore is Dead”, which also featured Michael Madsen.

And Michael Madsen was in “Bloodrayne”…

… which was directed by…

Degrees: Top Model edition

Degrees – Anybody can be a few steps from Kevin Bacon, but you have to be pretty famous (like us) to be this close to German B-movie schlockmeister and general bad human Uwe Boll. In this feature, we examine the many ways that we are connected to Uwe Boll.

This one starts with another former housemate:

housemate’s sister is Rebeccah, of Canada’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2.

LL Cool J starred with Michelle Rodriguez in the 2003 film, “S.W.A.T.”, and Michelle Rodriguez was in the vampire swords-and-sorcery film “BloodRayne”, which we covered here before.

Pouty. Always pouty.

And, of course, “BloodRayne” was directed by this guy:

Uwe Boll: Bad for humans.

Uwe Boll: Bad for humans.

NOTE: When filming “BloodRayne” in Western Europe, Uwe Boll decided that he did not want to pay the actresses hired to play prostitutes, so he got rid of the actresses and got real prostitutes to play prostitutes. Because they were cheaper.

Uwe Boll -> “Postal” -> Zack Ward -> The 1997 stock-car racing drama “Fast Track” -> Anais Granofsky who played aspiring movie director Lucy Fernandez on “Degrassi” -> Amanda Stepto – housemate -> boylorne

Remember that episode of “Degrassi” where Lucy makes a horror movie? I do.
