Still Love my Tank Girl canvas I did.
And Rufus Dayglo messaged me on tumblr saying he loved my work and that was a thing and I won’t ever forget that.
Now if Rufus ever signs my Tank Girl painting, I will be fucking happy and speechless.

I Bought A BluRay: TANK GIRL
After pre-ordering the upcoming NIGHTBREED BluRay from Shout Factory, I was checking over their catalogue and when I saw the special features on the TANK GIRL BluRay, I immediately bought it.
The only thing I have that even begins to near a complaint would be that, on the BluRay, you can sometimes see the wires when the Rippers are jumping around. But that’s more endearing now than anything else. Like when you watch THE WIZARD OF OZ and have to stop yourself from yelling ‘Stop! You’re about to dance into the backdrop!’ It does nothing to take away from how much I fucking love this movie.
My old DVD of TANK GIRL had a few things going for it. First of all, it contained the movie TANK GIRL which is a fucking excellent movie. Next, it was in widescreen which is nice. Then, it had the trailer on the disc as a feature. I love movie trailers, TANK GIRL has a pretty good one, and that’s cool to include it cuz a lot of movies don’t include that shit anymore. But that’s all that can be said for that DVD. The new edition, as you can see if you click that link above, has much much more.
This is how I wish all my favorite movies would get treated - throw on a couple of substantial interviews with some principle characters from the cast and crew, give me a commentary track, maybe a vintage making-of special or one or two retrospectives: whatever. This is what I love. And this is what I now have with the new TANK GIRL release. The trailer is there - thank you - and there’s a vintage making-of special. Then there are three interviews - about 15-20 minutes each - with director Rachel Talalay (who, by the way, is amazing - I can think of a lot of directors who get so butthurt when they don’t get final cut that they all but or actually do disown their movie, but Talalay is all class and though she clearly suffered crushing setbacks and stifling mismanagement from the studio in making the movie, and though she did not have final cut, she still clearly loves the movie and is very proud of it), production designer (and now renowned director herself) Catherine Hardwicke, and - of course - Tank Girl herself, Lori Petty.
Add to all of that the crowning glory - feature length commentary with Talalay and Petty. They clearly were not in the room together, but they were also clearly conference called together or something because this was a conversation and it is easily one of the better commentary tracks I’ve ever listened to. I learned, for instance, that Adam fucking Shankman choreographed the night club Busby Berkeley scene. I also learned that Rachel Talalay just really really wanted to do a Busby Berkeley scene and that is why that scene was written and made.
Is TANK GIRL a perfect movie? Define ‘perfect’. By my definition it’s pretty damn close. It’s super fun to watch, in spite of any plot holes. It also leaves me wanting more, though I love everything it gives me. God DAMN what a fucking great movie. If you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend checking it out. I also highly recommend this new release because the features are awesome and really add to the experience.
Finally, a bonus cool feature of the BluRay - the cover insert is reversible. You have two options for the cover and I especially love that because I like the alternate cover better.
