Containing Multitudes Since 2004
R.I.P Black Moses
I plugged my copy of Shaft into the DVD last night.That opening sequence is one of the best ever.The Special Features on my release of the DVD has a little behind-the-scenes film. It includes sequences in the studio where Parks is working with Hayes & the band to put the soundtrack together.The film itself - Its good, very good in some ways, but parts of it are dated now.Especially the super-cool, take no shit Shaft persona; it seems a little forced today.
Who dat dood?
Frig, I go away into the wilds of Newfoundland for a week, and I miss this?Weirdly, I included Hayes' Do Your Thing on the mix CD I made just for the trip.His music helps make Shaft great for sure, I also enjoyed the use of some of his tunes (including a sublime Walk on By) in Dead Presidents.I should rush home and put on my Truck Turner t-shirt post haste.
