I know a life of crime has led me to this sorry fate, and yet, I blame society. Society made me what I am.
I was cleaning up the template here at Things of the Spirit and came across a few unfinished posts and thought I should share them.
The movie Repo Man was a huge influence on me in my teen years. It was a quotable classic starring cool cars, cooler characters and a plot line stuffed full of bizarre themes. Plus it had an amazing punk rock soundtrack.
Recently Justin and I reviewed the film and J was able to assemble an amazing track using samples from the film, stringing together the character Miller's dialog involving the connectivity of all things in the universe, including a plate of shrimp. Check out the track here. The song will officially be released on the upcoming OvA album "Replicans not Replicants" the groups tribute to Gary Numan. Watch their Myspace page for details.
Now getting to the unfinished post part.
Over at Jalopnik, Repo Man creator Alex Cox chatted about how he picked the cars for the film and the site also posted a gallery of actual junkyard cars with the symbolic air freshener that Miller professes you will "find one in every car. You'll see.".
Remember...Repo Man's got all night, every night.
