Updates to begin pouring in (Part 3)-Bert I Gordon's interview is now up.
Mood:  lazy
Now Playing: Plus, Quentin Tarantino brings Nitzsche back.

I apologize as it has been awhile. But as they say: good things are worth waiting for. Today, I have finally posted my Q&A with Village of the Giants creator, Bert I Gordon. You will find it in the Interviews section of our Information page.

In mid-February, I journeyed out to California, and did an interview with Bert during the Hollywood Collectors & Celebrities Show. It was a pleasant experience, and was great to finally meet Bert I Gordon, and his daughter, Susan.

While I was there, I also asked a few questions to Joe Turkel. Joe's Q&A session will be coming soon as well.

On another note, I found some interesting news, from Solace in Cinema.

To some of us, Jack Nitzsche's music was a staple of Village of the Giants, and none moreso than his deep-bass rhythms that accompanied the shimmying and shaking of the giant teenagers as they danced in the Hainesville park. The track was titled The Last Race, and has been chosen as one of several tracks from the 60's and 70's that Quentin Tarantino will be using in the soundtrack to his next film.

Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez are combining forces to produce a double-feature film titled Grindhouse, which will open on April 6. The film is an homage to the double-features of the 70's and 80's. Tarantino's half of the double-bill will focus on a film titled Death Proof, in which an insane stuntman stalks and kills beautiful women with his car. Given that summary, it makes perfect sense for Nitzsche's song The Last Race to be included in the soundtrack.

The soundtrack will be released on April 3, with a total of 16 music tracks.
