Ti amo Gianfranco Reverberi

Just finished Delirium, an absolutely insane '72 Euro exploitation film by Renato Polselli. After watching a trailer, I was floored by the score of Italian composer, Gianfranco Reverberi. Since I could not find anything out about the music, I procured the hard to find movie off of ebay and had it shipped to me all the way from Israel. Frankly, this is one of the best soundtrack/scores I have ever heard. And it has never been released!!! -Disappointing. The film is not exactly one I would desire to watch repeatedly. I am a sucker for 60s and 70s Italian cinema, and while many elements of Delirium are succulent, it is not for the faint of heart. I gaped at the screen a few times, eyebrows raised. The shock value is definitely there, but my mind was more boggled due to babe, Rita Calderoni, and her character's deranged insanity. The entire score is just absolutely brilliant. Such a gem. Reverberi is highly underrated. In fact, Gnarls Barkley's song "Crazy" samples his work. These tasty jams need to be enjoyed on vinyl. It's got to happen.

There is an American version and an International version of the film... I chose to watch the latter. I heard they're significantly different, so I'll make sure to check the other one out.


Free will. Choice. Love. Freedom.

LAKERS 2010 NBA Champions

yay for the Lakers!

do what ya love. .. . . . ..

well. In reading about the possible consequences of the oil spill disaster, and its potential for arousing an extinction level event, all I can say is live day by day, and enjoy life to the fullest. The horror that is happening underneath the ocean is causing the sea floor to collapse, and who knows what else.... which will cause the earth to rumb~b~l~l~le. I don't blame it. I am interested in reviewing the scientific reports on quantities of methane gases released, whenever those may come. One may speculate on the parallels with this fiasco and the extinction of the dinosaurs. I keep in mind that it is essential to observe science, rather than speculation, and of course, the media. Meanwhile, BP continues to dump more toxins into the ocean. The whole situation is disgusting and deplorable.
