A Miscellany of What I'm Reading
If you had an Amazon wish list on your blog, someone might just gift it to you! BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER
I remember my roomate, at the time, wanted to sit down and watch this and I was expecting some dykey B-Movie fodder and it turned out to be one of the greatest movies I have ever seen.
Sean, I guess I need to work on that. :)
Mind of Mine, I know, right! It was such a surprise and so, so good! I still to this day tell people what my root was.
Thank you, Larry. I knew there are far, far better people out there at the Internets than me. :)
Did you get my email about ebay?
Also available from Netflix, at least on DVD which is the plan I have. I gave it 4 of 5 stars when I watched it a few years ago, some very clever bits.
Careful there, Larry. It's a region 2, meaning it won't work on an American DVD player. North America is region 1. If you play it on your computer, it will tell you that you have 9 more chances to change for another region, afterwards, it will region lock you to whatever you last played. If you can find something region 0, that would be the ideal. I have it back home on DivX AVI, and I'd send you a copy, but there's a continent between myself and the video. I fell in love with this video when I was about 16. I saw the review on Siskel and Ebert, and all I can remember of it is Eddie Cibrian suggestively rubbing the handle of a garden rake... That was all I needed....for a while.
Kyle, I did. But can you simply buy things from ebay? I thought it was all auctiony.
brotherdoc, I think I just need to get myself firmly entrenched in the 21st century and get a better Internet connection at home and Netflix. :)
Tamayn, actually the thing I remember the most - although admittedly not well - is a song played during the two main characters' first sexual experience. I was obsessed with that song (and now looking at my iTunes, I need to get it again).
She Looks At Me - That DogI found a copy of it done by the Rentals, which is actually half Weezer and half That Dog. They used to tour together, but That Dog broke up a while ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9Hb7J5Mk5MThat Dog is actually a great band. Gagged and Tied is their best CD in my opinion. Of ocurse, Anymore is my favorite of That Dog's songsm but it's off Totally Crushed Out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbMNcJ_zGf0He's Kissing Christian is an hilarious video too, and a very strange song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmFfQH1kOqk
I don't know if those are right, Tamayn, but I will check. I seem to recall a band name or song name, something like Glass Harp Cello Case...or something like that. :)
Glass Vase Cello Case is the band you're thinking of! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R84rhFHb7CsIt's the song at the end when she does the cheer! It's also the reason I love Go Sailor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnEKy9bbQ-w
Yup, that's it, Tamayn! :)
