can’t wait for the post-apocalypse throw-down…

so i was watching Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome today, dreaming about the post-apocalypse rag-tag, scavenger, bad-ass lifestyle (and wardrobe: fur and feathers and leather and chains and toys), and remembered Tank Girl…

…and how much Iggy Pop fucking scared me in this movie!!
ok hes at a strip club and asks for some school girl type fantasy and so the madame brings him this ten year old girl (ps my age at the time)…



and yeah i watched it again, definitely not as terrifying as i recall. i absolutely had bad dreams about that…oh and ignore that song and dance routine in that video, its the hokiest part of the film.
yeah the perv and “the pipe” (around 2:55) really screwed with me…and yeah thats Naomi Watts
………………………………………
and then couldn’t help but crush on Booga…even though the Ripper’s make up is pretty bizarre…
the Ripper’s are basically Teenage Mutant Ninja Kangaroos, and one of them is ICE-T!!!!!



and Lori Petty is so cute and the music is so good (this is 1995, the same year Mallrats came out) and the interspersed comic cartooning is pretty sucessful.
ive never read the comic, but the original was drawn by Jamie Hewlett, the same guy that drew the Gorillaz…

After a fifth of a century struggling to get women in the art world, the war is over. The Guerilla Girls of yesterday lay strewn on the battlefield as bright young flowers emerge from their corpses, thrilled by the limitless possibilities of tomorrow yet oblivious to the sacrifices made only yesterday.
