First of all, I just want to say “hello” to everyone. I just signed up a couple of days ago and have been lurking about ever since. I’ve only been a demi-avid fan of Tarantino for about a month now, so bare with me, allright?
Anyway, I’ve been hearing little bits of rumours about Tarantino directing a musical sometime in the near future, and I was wondering what everyone thinks the outcome would be like, and would he do the genre justice?
Personally, I think that he’d do a pretty kick arse job at it, given that most of his movies have had really fantiastic soundtracks. Ovbiously he knows how to incorporate music into film and make it work, so why not take it a step further?
Getting off onto a wee bit of a tangent here, but I’ve also heard rumours that one of my favourite artists, David Bowie, has been toying with the idea of converting one of his recent albums, 1. Outside, into a musical one day. For those of you who aren’t hardcore Bowie-philes (and I am sure there are many who aren’t), Outside is about the art - ritural murder of a 14 year-old girl named Baby Grace Blue. It’s described by Bowie as a “Non-linear, gothic drama hyper-cycle”. How cool would a Bowie / Tarantino collobration be on that sort of a project? ;D
Anywho, that’s my two yen on the subject.
