I’m crying for the mother who lost her only son, I’m crying for the father who lost his baby child, I’m crying for the sister who lost her loving man, I’m crying for the brother who couldn’t see the light, I’m crying, I’m crying, I’m crying. ~Lucinda
💋I see that 57 my love. Thank you as always. Maybe you were not a singer but your voice is everything to me. A BMF podcast from 2009:
True Romance soundtrack gets deluxe vinyl box set release for 25th anniversary. Quentin Tarantino cult classic coming to vinyl for the first time. GOT MINE!
Despite the soundtrack’s notoriety, this will mark its first legit release on vinyl (there was a South Korean release of “dubious origin”), and they went all out with the presentation. The deluxe package comes in either Clarence-inspired “king gold” vinyl (limited to 297 copies), Alabama-inspired clear with aqua and pink splatter vinyl (limited to 686), or white blood splatter vinyl (limited to 2,000).
Other than the violence and mob mayhem this movie has elements to describe what our true romance felt like…two lonely and unlikely people winding up together, compassion, adventures, Elvis, phone booth sex :). BMF loved Pulp Fiction (BMF!) and from there discovered everything Quentin Tarantino to include True Romance. He calls me up one day and tells me drop what you are doing and go find this movie and watch it. So of course I did. (more…)
Today I found this t-shirt packed away with what looks like goodwill clothes. I was so thrilled to see it. I bet he wore this shirt 1000 times. It was a favorite. And it has his life all over it. It was musty and I washed it and when I pulled it out of the dryer it felt like he was standing there ready to put it on.
Flashback to 2007…I love you.
