So, I just had to purchase these yesterday – - -
I usually buy all my books on Amazon, but seeing as these are UK titles, Amazon doesn’t seem to stock them like they do all my other fav. GN titles. (Just saw that they actually ARE stocking them now and for cheaper…oh well, you win some, you loose some!) - It’s ok though, because I supported my local Border store, which, in Australia has unfortunetly seen better days. I know a few of you out there are like, “Oh, Borders sucks, lets get rid of it”, but I used to work at a Borders back in the day, and I loved (most) of my time there. I left because management went a bit crazy, harrassing us about meeting sales targets and the like, when the job had orginially been all about customer service and product knowledge….But anywho! Back on to the GN’s!
I don’t know too much about Tank Girl, I saw the movie when it came out, but I was about twelve or so, and didn’t really get it. The soundtrack is pretty killer though (Joan Jett, Paul Westerberg, L7, Veruca Salt – it was a real Riot Grrrl soundtrack, which I guess really does fit with the whole look n’ all) but I can’t really remember that much of the actual movie, except for that most things went over my head.
The thing that attracted me to Tank Girl was the whole Aussie thing. It’s about this renegade chick that runs around post-apocalyptic Australia, with her mutated kangaroo boyfriend, and weird Australian characters surrounding her (like a gay Koala.) It sounds too weird and out there for me to ignore!! So, I had to have it and check it out! I dunno when (because I have a whole row of GN’s to get through in my bookcase AND because I am a really slow reader) but when I do get around to reading them, I will post a review on here quick smart!
