that's thirty minutes away--i'll be there in ten.

so because i finally saw 'death proof', quentin tarantino's half of the double feature 'grindhouse', there will be a three part series showcasing his soundtracks and his uncanny ability to match up movie scene with an appropriate song. this is most certainly one of the reasons all but one of his movies (not jackie brown) are in the imdb top 250 movies ever, ever, as selected by internet movie nerds from all over this bitch (which might be reliable as godfather one and two are there but not three). in this first part you'll get cuts from his first two movies, unfortunately for you none of it's surf.

from 'reservoir dogs'

edison lighthouse - love grows (where my rosemary goes)
blue swede - hooked on a feeling
harry nilsson - coconut
george baker selection - little green bag

from 'pulp fiction'
ricky nelson - lonesome town
dusty springfield - son of a preacher man
the statler bros. - flowers on the wall
chuck berry - you never can tell

ps. even though 'love grows (where my rosemary goes)' isn't actually on the 'reservoir dogs' soundtrack, k billy totally played it.

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't
