So I watched Tapeheads and loved it again. I always forget inbetween viewings of that movie *why* it is so good.
John Cusack and Tim Robbins making music videos. A few cameos, very goofy, very very 80s, but just damned good. Don Cornelius is in it, fer chrissakes. How can you not love that? (And on the opening credits it proclaims "Micheal Nesmith Presents" (he's the executive producer, a lot of the commercial bits in this have a very "Elephant Parts" kinda vibe) and he has a tiny non speaking cameo in the movie)
Connie Stevens, Ted Nugent, Bob McLean, Lyle Alzado, Martha Quin, Bobcat Goldthwait... and get this.. Jello Biafra as an FBI agent.
Musical score by Fishbone, and they make a cameo too.
If you haven't seen this movie, you should. If you did see this movie and you didn't like it, I don't like you.
On a completely different note, I don't really watch tv much. But everytime I've turned on the tv in the last week I've been confronted with at *least* one austin powers movie spot or tie in commercial. Everytime Aim starts I get *2* pop up screens all about austin powers (yes, I know, it's their movie... hush it) and any sites that are more... established company sites have got something about it too.
Give it a few weeks and all the fucking austin powers icons will start appearing on LJ.
Even if it's really gaddamned funny (which I don't think it is)... I hate this movie.
