The First Review?

While googling myself, I found this early review of Impossibly Funky on the IndieGoGo Blog. Yay!

Impossibly Funky: Be in the Know... About Taratin-O!

There are two kinds of people in the world - those whose classic movie knowledge is ungodly, and the rest of us who, well, never managed to find the brain space to store the last 60 years of pop culture. Or at least, that's what we tell ourselves:) So to you first kind of people, I have one thing to say: "wow." I don't know how you do it. Remember every director, actor, set location, movie line... Amazing. I am in awe.

To everyone else, I have a solution for us! It's called Impossibly Funky - a cliff notes-esque savior of sorts.

Here's what my movie-devouring friend had to say...

"The writers of Cashiers du Cinemart, an annual film magazine, grabbed some of their best essays and articles of the last fifteen years and made them into a, well, impossibly funky collection for fans like you and me. The book combines some serious cinephile knowledge with the point of view of the average fan (yes, the book even talks about some serious WTF moments like Hulk, Catwoman and Jar Jar Binks).

"Impossibly Funky includes real scripts, real-er interviews (ya, that real), and essays on everything from "girls gone wild" in film to Quentin Tarantino's "obsession" with the bathroom. With special sections of the book devoted just to giants in film (of course Star Wars gets a good chunk of coverage), the book is worth reading if only for its analysis of the film Black Shampoo. That’s right. A blacksploitation film very loosely based on the movie Shampoo with Warren Beatty. The movie's tagline is, “When he’s mad…he’s mean…he’s a killin’ machine." Salon owner/lovin' machine turns into chainsaw-wielding badass. I mean, c'mon! How can you ask for more?"
