Quick note: there will be a new Dork Tower ‘toon up tomorrow (Thursday) instead of today. Still kinda getting into gear for the new year…
I saw a fun movie the other night, and I have to find its soundtrack. Soon.
The movie is “CQ,” and while far from great, I enjoyed its Truffaut-esque qualities. And the clothes and the music were amazingly cool. A bit freakish that yet ANOTHER Coppola directed it (are there as many of them as there are Baldwins now? Sheesh), but anyway, as I noted, the soundtrack is something I must now seek out.
Given this, plus the fact that Dork Tower 26 should be shipping from the printer now, and given its “High Fidelity” theme, I thought I’d post the latest compilation I came up with.Still some tweaking to be done (particularly towards the end), but there you go. For the most part, I’m happy with how it works. And fortunately, we live in the times of ITunes, where tweaking is easy…
