A heartfelt testimonial about this soundtrack:
By the time I reached ninth grade in a sheltered East Coast prep school, I was a mess. Stripey athletic socks hiked to my knees, imitation members-only jacket, and a penchant for playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons.
Luckily for me, my older half-sister came to my rescue during one of her yearly visits from her goat farm in Seattle, Washington. She picked me up at boarding school in a silver Volvo, handed me an army canteen full of vodka and my first joint, and took me to see a punk-as-fuck film festival in the local Boho neighborhood.
I was to see three movies that night that changed my life forever -- The Warriors, Repo Man, and A Movie about Drug Dealers.
Like Drano for a young man''s soul, those three movies burned out the festering crap I had accumulated in fourteen years without firm stylistic guidance. In the first intermission, I walked to the lobby and threw my 20-sided die in the ash can. In the second intermission, I pulled my Phil Collins -- No Jacket Required cassette from my backpack and smashed it under my heel.
And after the third film -- after seeing A Movie About Drug Dealers -- I understood that my life had changed forever.
Two weeks later, I had a new wardrobe, a stylish sneer, and a girlfriend with a tattoo. I''m now a successful multi-millionare with a chain of underground music clubs, a successful multi-national crime syndicate, and my own bodyguard named "The Man Mountain." When in prison, I''m commonly discovered doing pull-ups on an upended cot, the stripey light slanting onto my ripped abdomen. I owe it all to that one movie.
Everybody''s got their own story about A Movie About Drug Dealers. Friends, I urge you to buy this CD and live -- or relive -- the moments that transformed a generation of pale, chess-playing dorks to a steely-eyed nation of small time hustlers. And thank God for it.
